With XPointers it's straightforward to specify the seventeenth verse of the
first book and so forth. For example, John 3:16 is probably something like

root().child(1, book, title, John).child(section, 3).child(16, v)

This is the sixteenth verse of the third section of the first book whose
title attribute is "John" of the entire document. I'm not sure whether this
matches up with Bosak's DTD, but you get the idea.
