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.
