Sure, feel free.

usfm2osis.py will always only generate best practice OSIS, to the best
of my & its ability, so it won't generate stuff that Sword needs due to
its own shortcomings (x-preverse). To the extent that Sword needs
x-preverse, it will have to be supplied otherwise. I think that's what
you mean by 'fix titles'.
I think you mean expanding references when you say 'cross-references'.
usfm2osis.py should do that, but I don't recall off the top of my head
how well it works. It doesn't use Sword bindings presently, so it's very
limited in its knowledge of versification systems.
