Your best bet is probably to start from the OSIS source material and
transform it directly using XSLT, SAX, or DOM processing. The SWORD engine
output is going to be very highly opinionated about any of the presentation
formats. Probably best to just take something you can manipulate yourself
and that is readily available, flexible, and well understood.
