If you use actual schema terms, then there are schema.or processors that  
will likely understand some of your stuff, although they probably don't  
understand general ontologies. If you use the same names, there are  
probably many people who are familiar enough with schema.org that they  
will understand some of your ontology already. (If you use different ones,  
those people are reasonably likely to make some mistakes confusing the two  
things they work with).

Does that help?
