OverDrive to Adopt epub

I found this press release from OverDrive interesting for several reasons. One is that it revealed some details about OverDrive's business that I didn't know. Another is that it gives a glimpse of Adobe's epub/ADEPT/Digital Editions strategy and how it all relates to end users.

This seems odd, since part of OverDrive's business is dependent on MobiPocket's DRM scheme. Is OverDrive hedging its bets in case Amazon/MobiPocket changes the terms? Or is this shaping up to be some kind of Adobe-and-friends vs. Amazon/MobiPocket smackdown?
