>Why RDF/OWL?  Who actually uses it? 


Coming from the old SGML days, having done 10 years of XML based implementations, I recently was involved in a (my first) RDF/OWL project.
I have to say that my first experiences are positive.
RDF/OWL really shines in integration of data coming from different sources using different vocabularies using the RDFS/OWL model to make inferences on class, property or instance identities.

Due to my background I started with the XML serialization of RDF using XSLT to do the querying and the transformations.
But this didn't feel right, using tree based processing on graphs.
So I moved quickly to other serializations (N3) and SPARQL instead of XSLT.

With other words, I would not put RDF/OWL anymore in the list of XML vocabularies. XML is only legacy in the RDF/OWL world.
