Many modules, both Bibles and commentaries, have additional introductory
material at the fictitious n:0 and 0:0 references.  Some apps are able
to display this information; Xiphos does so if headings are enabled,
because such text is conceptually a variant on headings.  The table
could perhaps use a different column heading descriptor.

The meaning of a verse list will vary a bit from one app to another --
Xiphos doesn't support creating verse lists on the fly, but it does
generate a verse list from e.g. sidebar search, and that list can then
be saved in bookmarks.

But other apps have a different interpretation of verse lists.
