Hi Elda,

I'm not sure about the cloning, but I don't think there's an easy  
method because it will be necessary to rename all entities---or at  
least change their namespace---in order to make entities and axioms of  
different copies of the ontology distinct from each other. I  
personally would probably go about doing this programmatically if I  
had the need for this task.

Methodologically, I'm afraid that your cloning approach will give you  
distorted results: your "huge" ontologies will end up having very  
regular structures, so the times measured will only tell you about the  
performance for this particular shape of ontology, not about general  
shapes with significantly less regularity.
