mobipocket output, but I also do not know how to do this only for the mobipocket conversion.
Unfortunatly me neither.

I am not familiar enough with Python and the recipe code to be able to do this.
The recipe has nothing to do with the output conversion, so you can't fix it in the recipe.

About your preference, I understand that you want the unmodified ePub but not all e-book readers understand this format, so the conversion approach also has its merit.
I'm aware of this and it's the reason that calibre supports conversions between all these various formats.
