For Bibles, there's an imp2osis.pl with the other Perl converters.

For the Westminster docs that you sent me, I was really only concerned 
that each individual entry was well-formed and valid, so I converted it 
from IMP to OSIS via emacs regex search & replace, rather than doing 
proper nesting of entries via some complicated script. Specifically, I 
transformed each \$\$\$\(.+?\)^J to </div><div osisID="\1">^J, converted 
the IMP tree address to an osisID, removed the first added </div>, added 
a </div> to the end, and wrapped the whole thing in appropriate OSIS doc
