[bioontology-support] Status of imports and Bioportal

BioPortal handles imports the same as Protege 3.x, therefore the imports will be loaded by loading the single IAO file.   

Ontologies loaded from a URL are refreshed, i.e. are re-loaded when new versions are detected. This "detection" process is run daily.
