I could almost swear that there is support in at least some front ends
already for linking from a <scripRef> entity.  Doesn't Bibletime support
that?  I thought that it was working this summer when I was working with
several ThML texts.  Maybe I was thinking of some one of the prototype
implementations we were working with.  Implementation in the RTF-based
BibleCS, though...?  I've never tried it.
