Wouldn't maybe BibleDesktop produce better OSIS conversions?

Its use is essentially for exporting our texts for use outside of Sword, which we don't support or encourage and which as often as not constitutes a license violation (of the content licenses). So, while I wouldn't mind seeing mod2osis work correctly, I'm not personally likely to expend much effort on it.
