Not that I'm aware of, sounds a mighty good idea.

I am planning to explore down a nearby path a little by echoing the Atom 
syndication format in OWL (and hopefully the service API in OWL-S) - 
mostly done [1] - then trying to build a "Semantic Validator". In other 
words, take the OWL model + an off-the-shelf reasoner + test assertions 
+ Atom instance data (translated to RDF/XML via XSLT) - stir it all up, 
and see if it's consistent.
