Yes. I'm not really sure how widely it's followed as a convention, and I
know it's not without controversy, but you'll notice that many of the well
known ontologies are retrievable at their uris (treating them as urls) -
e.g.:

 http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns
 http://www.w3.org/2000/01/rdf-schema
 http://www.w3.org/2002/07/owl
