I can see that is true if by RDF you mean an RDF serialization. When I see
the term "RDF" I interpret that to mean the whole of the semantic web
standards, which are at least as much about (varying levels of) semantics.

Do most people view "RDF" as syntax rather than semantics?

I would also say MF and MD have their own (more limited) semantics, and they
do not completely coincide.

What am I not getting here? These do not seem significantly interchangeable
at all.
