[bioontology-support] definitions in annotator results

Hi Andy, 

The current Annotator API does not return term definitions. You can use the "Term" web service [1] to get more details about a term of interest.

I notice that if I use the web UI and click on the link on the left (under TERM) , the "details" page includes a definition, but when I access the same annotation using the API, the "definitions" field is blank.  Is there some way to get the definition in the response from the API?
