While I can not say much about the further OSIS conversion steps, I think you want to be cautious and very careful how you approach the Swedish Bible society. It is easy to upset people over copyrights and it takes years to recover from that.
Dealing with similar situations I found most helpful having a ready text available, but also - and sometimes more improtantly having a translated front-end(s). Also have a look at GoBible (for J2MEE Mobile phones) - once you got your OSIS source ready this is an easy thing too and often gets people quite excited.
