[1] references [2], which is a zipped file of the DBPedia Ontology.

However, you are absolutely right, re. Linked Data publishing principles 
it might beneficial if, e.g.,

curl -H "Accept: application/rdf+xml" http://dbpedia.org/ontology/

or

curl -H "Accept: application/rdf+xml" http://dbpedia.org/ontology/Person

would resolve to a RDF/XML serialized description. It is a basic 
requirement especially re. Semantic Web ontology deployment to serve 
semantic graphs in different serializations formats. You are also right 
re. the application of rdfs:isDefinedBy for universals that are part of 
this ontology.

Cheers,


Bob
