What, so you only want examples where people use XML in boring and
obvious ways? :)

You *can* do RDF in XML where the ontologies are clever and the
notation of getting from model to implementation is low, i.e. well
designed and thought-out systems, but they are indeed far and wide
apart. Because semantic data modeling is a reasonably new thing
(although in Internet years it's really dog years by now) people tend
to do large and fluffy ontology work (not to mention that I think the
RDF people did a large and fluffy meta model when they designed RDF

The last few years have seen some pretty good improvements, with more
concise and practical RDF ontologies, so I think we're seeing
acceleration of use that will have an important impact on the future
of computing, for sure.
