I think this is largely up to you. You can do either. I would suggest
that having 10 definitive fixed and relatively frequent terms marked up
as Strongs will go some way to intelligently guess the rest. If you want
to create a Strong encoded Bible at some stage.

But on the other side, people will probably expect more and might react
in unfortunate ways when they see a text described as being Strong
encoded - and it is not, or at least not to their level of expectation.

But in the end it remains your decision.
