There are a number of other resources in the OOR data model that are not 
language dependent, such as UsageLog, Event, User, etc. See    (01)

http://www.ccs.neu.edu/home/kenb/oor/oorData.xmi or

Most of these seem to be in OMV or in OMV extensions. So I suggest that 
OMV is a good starting point.    (03)

While OMV is written in OWL, it does not seem to be highly class oriented, 
and I think it could accommodate other kinds of ontologies. For example, 
OMV has properties "numberOfClasses" and "numberOfProperties" which are 
RDF/OWL oriented, but it also has "numberOfAxioms".    (04)
