I just want the URI of the current node in the graph to be a live link 
i.e., an exit point from the visualization tool to the actual source. 
You offer something close to this in the side panel, but its scoped to 
the entire ontology rather than a selected term.

I am suggesting you make the selected node text e.g., "Tagging" an HTTP 
URI (hyperlink) via <a href="http://purl.org/muto/core#Tagging 
">Tagging</a> .
