static resources are good enough for the moment. Whenever you find an RDF resource and you want to find its meaning then you can dereference it with an HTTP Get

I think there are a few crawlers out there that do. You should probably check
and perhaps ask them to improve their UI or query language to make it easy to search for ontologies on certain sites.

As above, the basic mechanism is to walk it like a web spider walks the web. Give a search engine like Google a URL, and it fetches the docs, finds links to other docs, and repeats the procedure with those URLs.
But it would be easy to have 'official' sparql endpoints for things. One would just need a sparql relation to do that.

you don't need a sparql refrence point to walk anything. A sparql relation on an ontology, would be a bit like a link to Google on a web page....
