That may be a future change contemplated, but didn't occur with this latest modification. No formats were added to current offerings where one didn't exist before.

Technically, it will show a quantity, but I think that's misleading. For instance, I have had a title on my wish list for several months. The title prior to the change was listed in 3 formats -- ePUB, PDF and Mobipocket and showed each format as having one copy each. The ePUB and PDF each had a long waiting list, but the Mobipocket was always available so that's the format I put on my wish list (just as a reminder that I'd eventually get around to readng it).

Immediately after the latest change, the Mobipocket format of the book went to a 'hold' status indicating, to me, that it went into the wait queue of the other 2 formats. So, rather than increasing availability, the recent change, IMO, has actually reduced it.
