Currently, the EIE gateway Search returns GCMD "ESIP Services" Portal 
Search results (SERFs).. Is the plan for EIE gateway Search to return GCMD 
"ESIP" Portal Search results (DIFs)?

You can find the same Services and Datasets via the GOS Search, but these 
results are in ESRI FGDC format.. From the ESIP Metadata breakout 
meetings, I recall this issue being a concern.. Just so users are assured 
they're seeing the SAME dataset or service, but formatted differently, 
I recommend we clarify this somewhere in GOS.. Perhaps we can add a 
button in the GOS Metadata Results "EIE Metadata".. Likewise, I recommend 
we offer users a way to see the FGDC record from the DIF or SERF record 
returned in the EIE Search results..
