It’s a book - hence GenBook.

It’s not a Commentary.

USFM simply doesn’t apply to the work in focus or to others that I have in mind.

There are a few Scripture references in the text.

Since the whole point of having gen books in the sword platform is to promote bible study,  it seems a bit counter intuitive to not provide links where scripture is cited.  Usfm does have the structure, and is no harder to learn than mark down, and has a robust set of tools for checks.
