Just a clarification: The current Paratext 8.0 
(https://pt8.paratext.org/download/) remains based on USFM 2.4. It's the 
forthcoming Paratext 8.1 (early 2019???) that will presumably be based 
on USFM 3.0.

But yes, David's point remains valid as some text creators have already 
started to implement parts of USFM 3, plus next year is coming fast.
