I would argue just opposite ... ESV text is broken, and we should 
immediately replace these crazy attributes with something sensible. If 
you want to indent every second line of the poetry, then mark the text 
as poetry and do something about the presentation, but please do not 
drag this into OSIS document.

Again, think about Braille printers or speech generators; how they are 
supposed to deal with this? Is it important and should they care, or is 
it just mess you forgot to put into your stylesheet (or rendering program)?
