Actually, encoding <verse> tags with milestones is the OSIS best 
practice recommendation. If you have an extremely simplistic Bible 
without anything like paragraph or poetry formatting, you can go ahead 
and use <verse> containers, but in all other circumstances, the 
book/chapter/verse hierarchy is to be subordinate to the 
book/section/paragraph hierarchy. Book/chapter/verse is viewed as a 
foreign system placed over the inherent organization of the text.
