[bioontology-support] Returning a 'full concept bean' using search

Unfortunately there is currently no way to return full term 
representations alongside the search results. The search is designed to 
be as fast as possible and retrieving additional information would 
conflict with that goal.

Is there a specific property for the terms that you are interested in? 
We do include some basic properties in the search results, such as 
preferred name. There is also a query string parameter, 
"includedefinitions=true", which will provide definitions for the terms 
(as available) when it is passed in.
