Right. It is BD specific. Though my mention of it here is that the SWORD 
library is not handling it correctly and it too needs to change. The 
semantics of the change are the same.

Another quirk I thought of:
Suppose the following
<verse sID="xxx"/>
<lg sID="yyy"/>

That is the <lg> is the first thing in the verse.

In this case we don't want the <lg sID/> to output a <br/> after the 
verse number. Instead we want to output the <br/> then the verse number.

This is probably true for all instances of a verse start followed 
immediately by a block start.
