Two tools are currently available to translate from the XMI output from 
Poseidon into OWL in RDF/XML form.  They are exff from Eurostep [1] and
DUET [2] from AT&T.  exff was a proof of concept and thus isn't fully
functional.  However, it produces something pretty close to RDFS.  If that
is your target, then it might be a better starting point.  DUET preserves
more of the semantics of the model through the translation, but that 
exploits more of OWL's expressivity.  DUET also has a primitive user 
interface, so it may require some work to use.

I had been working on a mapping document as described above.  Hopefully, 
these emails will bump the priority of this work.
