My main problem with RDF is that I cannot transform my UML 
into "nice" RDFS since UML is object-oriented whereas RDF 
is property-centric.

And all my data is object-oriented, it just does not fit
very well into RDF. Can you show me an example of semantics 
defined in RDFS+RDF that I can not express using UML+SOAP
serialization? SOAP serialization seems much simpler
and better readable than RDF.
