OwnCloud currently can be configured via webdav. Unfortunately it is unintuitive for the common user.
I suggest adding a new configuration dialog for Owncloud service would have greater benefits:
+ Increased visibility
+ Ease of configuration (ej. server/user/password options)
+ View the future
This last point refers to the federated system owncloud is popular and is working to support CMIS.

Add it as a service is advantageous.

The following dialog could drastically simplify the setup:
