[bioontology-support] Plans to use Protege 4/OWL 2 in BioPortal

Not any time soon. For the moment, Protege 4 does not support a  
database backend. Also, all the protege/owl specific code will need to  
be re-written for Protege 4. Realistically, we are not switching to  
Protege 4 in the next year.

Note that BioPortal doesn't display any OWL 2 specific ontology  
structures anyway. So, one thing we can do is have some sort of pre- 
processing that "dumbs down" an OWL 2 file so that it can be processed  
with the OWL 1 API. Hopefully, we can use something off-the-shelf for
