Semantic Mediawiki uses basic templates to produce rdf. I could see it
being applicable, although whether it maps nicely to the way OWL
ontologies are set out would have to be discovered. There is no reason
why the ontology couldn't logically be produced as OWL files are based
on RDF which is reportedly fully supported.
