It is pretty easy to transform any XML into something that OWL 
understands e.g. http://www.openhealth.org/WOWG/XMLtoSchema.xsl (note 
this assumed a *very* early version of OWL/RDF and hasn't yet been 
updated) and similarly you might transform an XSD into an OWL ontology 
e.g.http://www.openhealth.org/WOWG/XSDtoSchema.xsl (which works only for 
some very simple XSDs i.e. is hardly complete) which is derived from 

This is a sketch of this type of approach 
http://www.openhealth.org/WOWG/ contains examples of XML documents and 
XSDs which have been so transformed.
