Yes, that sounds correct.

This was a bug in 1John1:5.  We had all variants turned on in the TR 
Greek text.  Now, per Maurice Robinson's advice, we're following the 
Scrivener variants.  You should only see ??????? (AGGELIA) now.

BUT.  if there were, just use the most base greek word for the phase and 
leave the other tags empty but positioned next to it.

Like these, I'm sure there will be a few more things that don't fit 
easily in our mold.  We'll be sure to run a few programmatic checks when 
it's all done and flag some verses for review.  Some things already on 
the list:

any verses with notes
any verses with empty tags other than articles
