I probably spoke up too soon. Gotta wait util things are more complete and
somebody explains how this all works. Then I can comment better, but my
concerns are still valid.
E.g., will a footnote be handled by the filter (gbfhtml) or by the app with

Well, that woud be nice if that was the case. But since sword features things
like cross-references we need to do our own filtering in order to be able to
handle the html-ized references correctly. That is why we use own filters.
Besides that, we do our own css-based html formatting, which is not possible
with the current sword built-in filters.
