[bioontology-support] Vocabulary abbreviations

I know I can query to obtain vocabulary information using
http://rest.bioontology.org/bioportal/ontologies/45221

My question , with respect to UMLS vocabularies,  is this:
The <abbreviation> returned in the rest query above does not necessarily match
the UMLS RSAB (Root source Abbrev)
	see
http://www.nlm.nih.gov/research/umls/knowledge_sources/metathesaurus/release/sou
rce_vocabularies.html


For example:  ICD-9 has an RSAB of ICD9CM;  the rest query returns
<abbreviation>ICD-9<abbreviation>

Does NCBO have a formal position on this issue?
Is there a way to reliably obtain the RSAB for a UMLS vocabulary?

Thanks
Lori Phillips
