So, the plugin contains a certain amount of "metadata". Things like the licence, the author, where to go and find documentation, and so on.
The DOAP and FOAF schemas can express this information and are widely used on the internet (there are in excess of 200M FOAF files out there), so reusing their structures makes sense.

Oh joy. Random ad hominem attacks remind me why I lost interest in the free software "community".
I'm not quite sure why you have come to such a dismissive conclusion, of a technology that you admit you don't understand. It's always possible that the many thousands of companies using this technology to solve real world problems are operating under some sort of mass hysteria of course, but I don't think so.
