You don't NEED RDF but it can be a useful tool nonetheless.
Well, sure, I'm not saying otherwise, but there are lots of conventions (you can regard RDF-XML as a convention!) that do things that *can* be done with plain XML.

        I agree with this statement, but I would add that it is very

        XML primarily -- natively -- has a tree-based data model.

        It can store graphs, but doing so requires an extra data model such
        as RDF or XBRL linkbases (which massively use XLink), and such data
        models are not specifically bound or restricted to XML syntax.

    ID/IDREF can be used for graphs... a native facility.  You don't
    really need RDF, etc.
