That is what I understand.

Chris mentioned that the tool to create one exist already: osis2gbs. 
Perhaps they can be created and put into beta. I would think that having 
one or more in beta would spur development.

No timeline. As far as I know, no one has stepped up and volunteered to 
make the remaining changes.

Perhaps when Troy comes back from BibleTech he can outline an 
engineering task list.

I agree with Chris: the mapping of one scheme to another should be left 
for a later release.
