Re: What is declarative XML? (And what's not)
Overall, however, I'm not sure this is the most accurate conceptual metaphor. I'm much more inclined to see various potentially overlapping models as being frames of reference in describing reality, in essence more of a relativistic approach, with transformations acting as tensors mapping completely or incompletely between these frames of reference.
The problem with contemporary computational semantics (RDF et al) is that assertions are binary - there is absolutely nothing in RDF that can be used to view assertions in a stochastic or fuzzy manner, which is one of the fundamental characteristics of quantum systems. You can make a reasonably strong case for being able to make logical inferences with RDF - this was what it grew out of, of course. However, there's no formal mechanism in RDF as it stands right now to be able to say "the probability or strength of assertion X is 0.75". That's not to say that this couldn't be introduced, mind you, and I'm not so sure that it's necessarily a bad idea, though the processing becomes considerably more complex at that point once you do make that step.
