Dear Peter,

If you ever find that you need to manually add x-preverse to your OSIS 
text before importing then a bug should be raised either here or in jira 
about what standard OSIS markup doesn't get imported correctly via osis2mod.

I realize often you just need to get something to work quickly, but this 
doesn't help us solve the core problem moving forward.

The clear specification is OSIS.  You should never need to add any 
custom tags to your document.  Again, that's the goal in a perfect 
world.  I believe we have somewhere a 'best practices' document for OSIS 
markup which is know to work with osis2mod.  We have about 5 OSIS 
tutorials floating around and I'm not sure what state they are all in, 
but they should probably be clean up to give you what you ask for below, 
'a clear specification to work to'.
