Yes, others will continue to create ThML, but everything that goes into 
the CrossWire repositories will probably be either OSIS or TEI. And the 
existing content will gradually be converted from ThML & GBF to OSIS. As 
yet, that conversion has occurred on the basis of needed updates, but I 
plan to convert a number of sets of modules en masse this holiday. 
Besides this, I really wouldn't say that the collective output of people 
producing content in ThML for the Xiphos repository has any chance of 
countering the trend of OSIS/TEI content produced for CrossWire 
(numerically speaking).
