By this logic, any book available in ePub but not Kindle will be "unfair" to Kindle users. Release the hounds!

Or, we can say that Overdrive has been "unfair" to date as it hasn't offered its services to Kindle users.

Besides, Overdrive plans to nerf format distinctions in its service in the near future. End-users won't see format options, and librarians won't have to purchase/license 3 PDF's, 2 ePubs and 1 AZW.

You really ought to accept that for Overdrive to expand its services to include more potential patrons is a Good Thing.
