I Agree, but also because it's ultimately the readers of the epub who decide, and vote with the rating system, then why would Apple care.
Someone buys an epub which looks horrible on the iPad. 9/10 times it's the end users only reading device (for the gen pop, not people here who have multiple devies) so they don't know, they just think it's suppose to look that way, maybe some of them will complain.
And of the ones who do complain, Do you really think the maker of the epub is going to follow them around and try to explain:
"Oh, it's because Apple aren't following the epub specs like their suppose to, blame Apple, waaa"
And the end users will say "If you knew about Apple not following the spec, then why didn't compensate for it and give me a properly formated epub which I can read on iPad?"
