It is an RDF file. The clue is in the name: RDFa, which is an
(HTML-based) syntax for RDF. There are also .nt and .nq files
(NTriples and NQuads) available in the Github repository in the
data/releases/ filetree via http://github.com/schemaorg/schemaorg/

Most modern RDF tools are capable of parsing these formats, so we have
not made an RDF/XML version available.

For example the RDFa can be imported into Dydra, e.g. here's an
experimental SPARQL view of the data:
http://dydra.com/danbri/schema-org (I forget which release, sorry).

If this doesn't work out for you, let us know here and we can see
about generating RDF/XML with each release.

The OWL representation indeed was an early experiment and is not maintained.
