The point is not about your various senses.

I am saying if it is not used as “background knowledge” for the search
engines involved, then something wrong with one or both parties.

Again, the research mentioned is just studying a specific case: "a novel
event extraction model that uses distant supervision to assign scores to
individual event fields (event name, date, time and location) and a
structural algorithm to optimally group these fields into event records"..

Schema.org initiative has been lasting about 7 years with the prospects to
structure web data as a global knowledge web (graph), or "create, maintain,
and promote schemas for structured data on the Internet, on web pages, in
email messages, and beyond".  Besides, it has its long-existed predecessors
as Microformats, FOAF, and OpenCyc.

The schema.org ontology/vocabulary (with its classes, subclasses and
instances) is not in much use with the stakeholders knowledge systems:

Google's Knowledge Graph

Microsoft Bing's Satori Knowledge Base

Yandex's Object Answer

Yahoo! KB technologies

LinkedIn's Knowledge Graph, etc.

Just some Schema markups (Organization and Person) are used to influence
Google's Knowledge Graph results.

Meantime Schema.org is said to be sponsored by Google, Microsoft, Yahoo and
Yandex <http://schema.org/>.
