Now, however, all three formats go to 'hold' status if even just one format is checked out.

I think wait times for digital books just got much longer
Maybe. But it also means that if the library didn't have an ePub edition and there is one, now they have it. All those PDF purchases instead of ePub now have ePub. Overall this is good. It also means that if there was 2 PDF 1 Mobipocket & 1 ePub, there's now 4 copies regardless of format.
