This is work that I looked up sometime back:
1. Work by Jana Koehler at IBM Zurich. A recent talk:
"Model-Driven Business Integration - A Complementary Effort to the 
Semantic Web?"

2. Work by Jianwen Su at UCSB. Publications available at:

3. Work from HP Labs:
More here: http://www.hpl.hp.com/personal/Fabio_Casati/publications.html

Most of these use BPEL as the execution mechanism,  finite machine 
based  intermediary models to check
correctness and transformations between  models to realize MDA. I am not 
sure how much has been explored
with OWL-S as the execution mechanism and extensions required from 
higher level models to support OWL-S semantics.
As per my understanding semantic disconnects are an issue with MDA.
