Two reasons for only partial compatability:
- syntactic: we're not sure if we can organise the XML syntax to "include" a/some/all of the RDF Schema serialisations. 
- semantic: as you know, the RDF Schema model contains some oddities (classes as members of classes, etc). We might want to make the OWL meta-model simpler.
