I am getting owl.owl from there.

Would it work with standard GRDDL aware tools to get an XSLT from there, when there is also an RDF/XML file at the same location?

Not that I propose to have some owl2.owl there later, but if several resources are going to compete, I would hardly expect to find there the XSLT of a the OWL/XML syntax at the first place. Rather some information about OWL, perhaps with the data in this information page also available in RDF form.

Probably, this will be some issue that needs to be resolved: What will be at that URL after OWL 2 is finished?
