The Web Ont WG didn't actually produce an OWL file for describing 
OWL, rather the namespace document above is an RDF schema.  It is 
becoming clear that an OWL ontology describing OWL would be a 
powerful tool, but the work has not yet been done to my knowledge -- 
I've actually been fooling around with it in my spare time, but 
haven't done very much due to not having very much spare time -- 
would love to find someone else who has done it
