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.
