I noticed another use of RDF as linked data in the Available  
Vocabularies section:

"Metadata element sets: A metadata element set is a namespace that  
contains terms used to describe entities. In the linked data paradigm,  
such element sets are materialized through (RDF) schemas or (OWL)  
ontologies, with RDF vocabulary occasionally being used as an umbrella  
term. " (para. 6 in blog)

Would a term like "generally" before "materialized" satisfy the  
concern? Is there an example of non-RDF LD that we can refer to?
