Why some bible modules have cross-references and others don't?

ESV version of Bible has cross-references, and for instance KJV, or RST — don't. Why there is such dependancy between the bible module and the cross-references? Why cross-references aren't an independent module which could work with any Bible translation?

Different translators include different cross-references, for various editorial reasons. (And some include none in their translations.)

If you want a general set of cross-references, use the TSK module.

Adding to what Osk said, the cross-references are linked to words rather than verses, making it more difficult to use them across versions (it is possible to do what the TSK does and have the word, then the cross-references for that word, but they would not be integrated together in the same way).
