Regarding: http://www.w3.org/2002/07/owl, it says, in an rdfs:comment, 
that "People that do import this file should expect their ontology to be 
an OWL Full ontology."

Can we be a bit more definitive about that, i.e. "If this ontology is 
imported into another ontology, the resultant ontology will always be an 
OWL Full ontology."

Were it says: "This file specifies in RDF Schema format the built-in 
classes and properties that together form the basis of the RDF/XML 
syntax of OWL Full, OWL DL and OWL Lite."

How about: "This file is an RDF Schema representation of the RDF/XML 
syntax for OWL, such as can be described in RDF Schema. It is not a 
complete specification for the OWL language and in particular does not 
capture all of the syntactic constraints on the OWL Lite and DL subsets 
of the language."
