Re: UMO Edit screenshot, take two

Even more. I believe an UMO has more than "Title" and "Anotation" or
"Description?" (which is that _for-unknown-reason-unnamed_ text area
under the "Title" box) features. There also are "Keywords" and, probably
more (what are our latest developments in or out of specs?). All of
these could be edited have to have a place on the "Edit" page.
