The import tools, including osis2mod, have a very simple algorithm for 
handling verses that they does not recognize as canonical KJV verses. 
They attach them to the previous valid KJV verse, following an 
identification of the verse number in the native (non-KJV) versification 

1) No information is ever lost.
2) If you query a non-KJV verse, the prior valid KJV verse will be 
returned, meaning you will still get the content you queried, just with 
some other stuff presumably preceding it.
3) No re-versification or versification normalization/standardization is 
occurring. If it were, you'd see verses from non-KJV reference schemes 
being placed in the verse with the same content in the KJV. This is (for 
better or worse, since it does have its advantages) the kind of thing 
you find in some OLB modules.
