I'm not sure how it should work. It is certainly the way it is coded. 
Chapter 0 and Verse 0 are full fledged references.

That is for Genesis
Gen.0.0 is the Book intro/title
Gen.1.0 is the Chapter intro/title

In your example, Exodus 3:1-4:17 explicitly excludes the Chapter 3 
intro, if present, but explicitly includes it for chapter 4, if present.

So if you want all of Genesis, chapter 1, do you want the title as well? 
Then Gen.1 will work. But if you don't and headings are turned on, what 
then? Gen.1.1-Gen.1.21?

If you want part of the chapter, say the first 10 verses, what do you 
want? Gen.1.0-Gen.1.10 or Gen.1.1-Gen.1.10?

Right now, the code makes no distinction between one chapter number and 
another or one verse number and another. Should it?

If not, what should it do?
