The Iceberg principle demonstrates the inferential component of human speech. What appears above the water is the code, what is hidden below the water is the shared cognitive framework which allows inferential meaning to be understood. It's a mistake to think that meaning is somehow embedded at the code level. It isn't there. Without the shared cognitive framework the code will fail. The top-down approach begins with the shared cognitive framework and moves down from there. The traditional approach attempts to extract meaning from the code itself which is futile.
