If you're talking about a facility to take any random text file, such as 
the Arabic Bible, load it in OpenOffice and use an export filter to 
generate OSIS, then that's an intractably complex problem that is 
virtually impossible to solve.

If you're talking about an OSIS export facility in OpenOffice that uses 
  specialized styles, requiring that any document that would be exported 
as OSIS have been written with those styles, then that's quite possible. 
There's been plenty of talk of it at various times, but no one has 
written anything to my knowledge. CCEL did an OSIS exporter for Word 
2003, though.
