I agree with you completely!  I have the same problem with OpenCyc KB.
But OpenCyc is making progress.
1. They added a "Concept Browser" -- a nice HTTP interface that lets you
scroll through KB entries with similar names.  They have also added HTTP 
"services" that you can use to get important properties of concepts.
2. They  are integrating with the Wikipedia knowledge base.
3. Past work has already linked them with WordNet info.
