I'm a support engineer at Microsoft supporting Windows Mobile, and now Windows Phone 7. I have a prototype device that I'm using in order to learn its in and outs, but I don't have my scriptures on it!
I'm seeking the scripture data files in order to develop an application for WP7. As you are already aware, the application on WP7 will be written in C# and use Silverlight as the UI.
Should I just go to the Windows Mobile project to start?
I don't think the Church will currently lend out the scripture data files for anyone who wants to do a project involving them. Rather, you can volunteer on the Windows Mobile scriptures project that is already underway. In order to have access to the scripture files, you must be involved in the Church's sponsored project, and at that point, those files may only be used for that project you're volunteered for.
I actually have ties to the project, as mentioned earlier in this thread:

The hangups for the Windows Mobile apps are a small team of active participants and also the Microsoft mobile development technologies themselves. Windows Phone 7 should improve things, but in order to get the most adoption, we have to currently target Windows Mobile 6 and 6.5.
My interest would probably be rekindled with Windows Phone 7.
