[sword-devel] What is a mid-verse title?

Just to ensure there is no misunderstanding...

Paratext permits but does not enforce sub-verses in the verse tag.

The USFM Reference does not document this feature.

We often see these explicit examples:

\v 3-5a Some verse text for three and a half verses
\v 5v-7 Some verse text for three and a half verses

A section title between these two lines thus becomes a mid-verse title part
way through verse 5.


>From translators we now encounter things like this:

\v 5 some verse text for part of a verse
\s A suitable section title
\p the remaining text for verse five
\v 6 the text for verse six

So what does usfm2osis.py do with these implicit examples?
It doesn't first convert them to using sub-verses.

It has no brief to do that. 
And even the code to handle explicit sub-verses is still only a roadmap

What should the OSIS output look like here?
And how will osis2mod handle the OSIS made using usfm2osis ?
