Would it be possible to add a feature (unless it's already possible) to 
limit a search query to a part of an ontology? Example search only 
children of Unit_of_Measure in NCI Thesaurus.

At the moment the only way I think it could work would be to ask the 
root path for every term in the result list, which of course is not very 

Ccing Kees van Bochove on the email who's also interested in this feature.
