Great question, well asked. I wish I had a fully satisfactory answer.
Most existing documents with CC RDF say rdf:about="", but that's exactly
the same as using the URI of the current document. Perhaps do that, but
add <owl:sameAs rdf:resource="http://purl.org/..."/>. That way any RDF
processor can make sense of the assertions about the current URL, and
anyone who wants to drag in OWL can see that the assertions also apply
to the PURL.
