Dear Renato,

You could be interested in adding Graffoo, the Graphical Framework for OWL Ontologies [1], to your list. 

In addition, I'm recently working to extend DiTTO (Diagrams Transformations inTo OWL) [2] in order to manage both E/R diagrams with crows' foot notations (already, even partially, implemented) and Graffoo diagrams, thus having an automatic process to create an OWL ontology from a diagram stored in GraphML format (and created through yEd [3]).

I hope it might help. Have a nice day :-)
