[bioontology-support] access to individuals and classes

I'm not completely sure what you mean by this since the individuals  
will only ever be added beneath a class, no? I assume that by this you  
mean that the individuals should only be returned as part of the  
result and not the classes themselves, i.e.

in OBI (version 38617), we'd make a search under 'digital entity  
(OBI_0000261)' and the result would be:

analytical cytology data file
binary digital entity
binary executable
electronic case report form
electronic case report tabulation
eMedical record
eSource document
text based digital entity

and the class 'digital document' is removed from the result since  
you'd only be returning the individuals. is this what you meant?! i  
think that this is fine for now, but it would maybe be useful to  
reference the parent class of the individual in the XML file returned  
if this is not too much effort!

many thanks as always,
