[osis-users] Non-contiguous osisRefs

(Cross-post on Open Scriptures and OSIS Users)

A common use case for looking up passages is to not only use a range (Exodus
2:1-3) but also to include non-consecutive verses (Exodus 2:1,3; 4:3-5).

I am thinking that for addressing verses in a REST API, the use of
osisIDs/osisRefs are the best bet. How about extending the osisRef to allow
for non-contiguous verses? For example, separating ranges with semicolons:


The work_prefix would apply to all subsequent osisIDs listed until another
one is introduced.
