Perhaps I am confused about what you're suggesting, so I'll explain what 
we have and what I think you're saying, and you can correct me if I'm 

We have the following relevant modules:
WLC (Hebrew OT, maybe with morphology available some day as an unlock)
LXX (Greek OT translated from the Hebrew OT, with morphology & Strong's 
Byz (Greek NT with morphology, Strong's numbers, and word-to-word 
linking with our KJV)
KJV (English OT/NT translated from equivalents to our WLC & Byz texts, 
with Strong's numbers throughout, morphology of the Greek in the NT, and 
word-to-word linking with our Byz text)

(a) It seems like you're just suggesting that we should tag the LXX with 
Strong's number, but we already have that.

(b) I can see the value in tagging the WLC with Strong's numbers and 
linking these word-to-word with the KJV.

(c) I don't know that linking the LXX would be that useful since the KJV 
is not a translation of it per se. But doing this would be fairly 
trivial since the linking could be more or less automated through the 
Strong's numbers.

(c) I could also see linking the LXX and the WLC, but this would require 
doing something like (c) in the process.

If you really just want to see which LXX word corresponds to which KJV 
word, I think you can already do that in the web frontend.
