I remember beautiful days when I could go to https://sindice.com/ or
https://www.w3.org/2001/sw/wiki/Falcons and get more information about
ontologies.
Watson seemed to be more advanced, but I haven't used it. I have the source
code Mathieu d'Aquin <http://kmi.open.ac.uk/people/member/mathieu-daquin>
posted to Github. I wonder if I could spin an instance up?

This is not schema.org stuff, but it does deal with provenance:
https://www.w3.org/TR/prov-o/ .

I hope you find what you're looking for!
