To SWORD and JSword it is just a normalized name that has robust lookup. Until it is part of a canon*.h (or JSword's equivalent) it is not of much use to a front-end.

I would hold off just a bit. I'm still doing a bit of research before I 
finalize the set. When the set seems stable, I'll commit the additions 
to Sword's canon_abbrevs.h file.

In practical terms, it's true that none of this much matters until the 
books appear in a versification system, but I plan to test a superset 
versification system that should have a verse slot for every conceivable 
verse in every book of every Bible. So it's possible that all these 
books will be needed in implementations soon.
