Yes, I noticed that and have a question/tracker item into Natasha to  
help resolve the issue regarding the display of the term labels.

We can certainly set-up AEO to pull automatically. Can you generate an  
ontology metadata file in the same format as used for VO and then send  
us the full path to the location to where this file has been uploaded?
