True, I don't need it - there's nothing /neccessary/ about RDF/OWL
-, but it is handy in the same sense a webserver's log file is
handy. For the needs I have rolling out databases seems like
overkill. Maybe it'll come to that.

It could be an XML format, but as you mentioned the main value I'm
getting is being able to walk the relations not the interchange
format. One of the main issues with XML is that I honestly don't
know what the content model for "application level syslog" should
look like at this time but I do know that having applications write
out triple relations using global keys is a good thing.
