As Boris already pointed out [1], it wouldn't make much sense to  
provide an axiomatic semantics for OWL DL, so we are only really  
talking about OWL Full. Given the close relationship between OWL (in  
particular OWL Full) and RDF, it is not at all surprising that the  
WebOnt WG chose to define the semantics of OWL Full as an extension  
of the RDF semantics.
