Reading the OSIS source, my best reading of the purpose of the marker is to provide an alternative verse start and end reference 
"This is Romans 14:23, but you could also have it as Romans 16:26" or some such. I think the source is convoluted, has too many extensions which are probably by and large irrelevant - but this is how I read it. 

What should SWORD do? Good question - maybe nothing at this moment, but always consider - we do not write modules for the current engine, but we try and encode everything and if rthere is enough demand by way of new encodings in new modules we extend the engine to cover that. So, up to a point I am perfectly happy with having plenty codes in modules which is ignored at this moment in time. A time may well come when it becomes useful. Particularly as for many things a CSS setting is all that is required. Not sure here.
