My question remains ignored and unanswered, but now I know it will not be by you and Kingsley: Why in the world invent these new awkward formal languages when an easier to read by people family of formal languages for which there is a huge existing body of knowledge about how to reason with them already exists?  

Did I not make my context clear? Basically, how does this huge existing body of knowledge become a Web, once exploitable via public (World Wide Web) and/or private networks (intranets [LANs] and extranets [identity constrained WANs] ) .

The invention here, if its to characterized as such, boils down to:

1. HTTP URI based entity denotation
2. RDF language based structured data representation
3. HTTP based data access.

Do you have some alternative to the above in regards to web-like knowledge that's accessible via HTTP networks?
