We've definitely never used your mOSIS files. We have a policy of always
using the highest quality copy of documents, nearest the maintained
source. In the case of your documents, I believe it's the USFM copy that
you use as the archival master and everything else is derived from that.
We also absolutely can't use documents converted from USFM to OSIS by
converters other than our own. Maintaining control over both the USFM to
OSIS converter (usfm2osis.py in this case) and the filters in Sword that
generate HTML, etc. from OSIS means we can implement private-use
extensions in the OSIS we generate and write code to specifically target
them in our filters.
