You can use ThML within the imp format. For Bibles/Commentaries all you need 
do is insert the imp line at the appropriate location to delineate verses, 
leaving the ThML alone. The same goes with dictionaries. However, it might 
be better to use the OSIS method simply because OSIS is more standard than 
ThML. Of course, it all depends on what you want to do with the documents 
and how much control you want to maintain over the formatting.
