My thoughts of what VerseKey should become in the future.

Let us enumerate all existing verses in Bible, even in apochripha by just 
_natural numbers_. This enumeration would include also verses present in other 
verse even not presenting in KJV.

Then we should just define mapping from KJV and other numbering schemes to the 
natural numbers (by files).

If a verse in a numbering scheme is two verses in an another scheme, let in 
the first scheme it would be represented as the first of the two natural 
numbers of the second scheme.

(Almost) perfect mathematically!
