2. Topaz (which is completely different to any other format)
3. Print Replica (PDF in a Palm Doc wrapper)
4. KF8 (Modified HTML5/CSS2 in ?)
One advantage of Amazon's approach is that a Kindle ebook is whatever they say it is.
They use whatever wrapper they want around whatever format(s) they want and consumers don't have to worry their pretty little heads over it.
It just works.

It won't work for everybody--it doesn't have to--but so far it is working for a *lot* of people.
