[protege-owl] adding ontologies

You might want to look at the Galen Segmenter [1], which supports 
extraction of OWL entities from multiple ontologies into one ontology.

Another possibility, is to use SWRL rules in C and F to do the mapping. 
The SWRLFactory API [2] can then be used to copy rules between ontologies.
