I think reality is what mandates things, more often than not, to be done
in an bass-ackwards way. In an ideal world the order would have been

We have RDF now and so let's all keep working to put it in its place.
It's never fun changing a foundation, but it's not impossible.

applications that interoperate with the existing web -- and watch the
order be restored :)
