No the purpose is to convey the unique semantics/meaning/characteristics 
of the page, the fact that it can be read by something other than a web 
browser is secondary I think, and also a bonus, If the data is there why 
cant it be used by say a search engine a parser that converts the 
information to RDF?

Best wishes
