It's a bit more complex than that. When the KJV was first released it 
had no Apocrypha (well, would *you* want to assert that hyenas change 
their sex biannually?), and when a translation of the Apocrypha was 
released later, it was always numbered and bound collectively and 
separately (usually between OT and NT).

However, this is the age of somputers. Ship it either configured to be 
separate-looking (separate class for searches and numbering, and not 
searched by default) or offer it as an optional extra, which (if 
installed) you should be able to refer to both ways.
