No, no. It is wrong if you only retrieve the two subclasses.  First, what
makes you stop retrieving the subclass of "Independent_continuant"? Second,
how do you figure it out there is only two subclasses? You must retrieve the
entire graph right? 

The URI for the "continuant", is

http://fugo.sourceforge.net/ontology/FuGO.owl#Fugo_1

But if you retrieve it, you retrieve the entire graph under the entire
namespace.  And as the "web_closure" goes, you have to follow the URI of all
terms, besides, rdf, rdfs, owl, dublin core (element and terms), protégé
plug-ins, and etc.,.
