Great! What kind of functionality would you want out of the box for this
kind of functionality? Do you have your own website already where you'd
want to include this? Would a REST API work with WordPress? or do you
usually include some HTML snippet in your content?

OpenScriptures people seem to have an API described here:
https://github.com/openscriptures/api/wiki/RESTful-URI-Structure so it may
make sense to align to that. As far as I can tell from their website, it is
just a spec at the moment. But someone can correct me if I'm wrong?
