Michael clarifies me admirably.

If you are trying to get to SILK and you do no special analysis at the FOL level, then going directly to SILK via a visitor would be reasonable. If you massage at the FOL level (and have multiple FOL or other input formats) then going from OWL to your FOL object model is the right thing.
