W.r.t XPath for RDF, you might want to take a look at FSL [1]. It 
features some basic RDFS/OWL awareness w.r.t class and property 
hierarchies. More might come in XPR (an extension of FSL currently being 

We have a full Jena implentation of it, as well as an evaluator built 
into IsaViz [2] that highlights path instances matching the FSL 
expression in the graph [3] (useful for FSL debugging).
