You (& Nate) couldn't be more wrong. ePub is not "doomed". At worst Sony is doomed. DRM-ePub maybe doomed as well, but what else is new. People will get burned using it and will be forced to learn how remove it. Same as in the early days of mp3s. ePub, ublike any other book format out there - is a standard. Means there's more documentation how to work with it. Also you have Sigil & friends for editing ePub files. You could also call it Calibre main format. There is work on creating a new version of it that will support dictionaries natively. The days of ePub are just beginning.
