The way I see, personally, is that RDF/OWL are abstract models and there
are various serialization of those. There is RDF/XML and Turtle, and
both are o.k. Similarly, for, eg, a SPARQL return, there is XML and JSON
and it will depend on what you do which one you will prefer; the
important is the 'abstract' SPARQL query and what it returns.

Ie: I do not see JSON and RDF/OWL at the same level of abstraction at all...

Cheers

Ivan
