[bioontology-support] full id vs short id in ontology terms

Just FYI, the json service is not intended for use outside of the 
context of the widgets. It essentially wraps the RESTful search service 
provided by BioPortal, which is intended for use by clients. The fix 
that Trish mentioned will apply to the search service as well (but it 
does sound like you will want the term service that outputs RDF, which 
is coming).

More info on the search service is available here:
