I found a way to achieve results for all users... not ideal, but perfectly acceptable. Books are products just like any others, and market penetration is paramount.
But you could achieve optimal results for those who want ePub. That would be better. It also sounds like you've reduced the size of the images when you don't need to for the ePub.

ePub is not 10%. ePub has a lot larger market then you think. Sony, B&N, Kobo, Astak, Jetbook, Pandigital, Pocketbook, and others all handle ePub. With all dedicated readers that handle ePub, it's not 10%. And are you taking into account the world beyond the US? If you do, you'll find even more ePub usage. I have no idea the actual numbers. But it is not 90%/10%.

If you were a user that used ePub, would you want the ePub you were reading to be made a well as it can be?
