Then just follow-your-nose manually. Basically, you can insert the 
ontology or vocabulary triples into your local store etc..

You start with you little Turtle. Then ingest the ontology documents as 
an when you need to exploit their classs and/or property definitions.

If we weren't so distracted by unnecessary stuff, circa. 2012, everyone 
would be enjoying the wonderment of the deconstruction black box DBMS 
technology and its reconstruction in the form of Open Webby Data 
Management, Access, and Integration. Our eyes currently remain (for the 
most part) "wide shut" .
