Hmmm... is this something that is going to be fixed, or should I strip
out such rich content?

Is that only when needed to balance the OSIS fragment that results from
extracting one verse or a range of verses, or are these things stuffed
between every verse? (I would think that the latter approach would wreak
havoc on the formatting of the text.) Or do you mean that when those
tags immediately follow a verse start marker, they are moved before the
verse start marker?
