I rather disagree. How we interact with information depends 
fundamentally on the type of information. If the information is a set of 
geographical coordinates, for example, the set of useful interactions 
are rather different to those for a bibliographic entry. Trying to 
pretend that the two problems are just interchangeable instances of the 
same "semantically structured information" problem is likely to hide the 
important distinctions between the two problem domains.
