I'm probably a bit off-topic here, but...
I'm hoping Amazon allows the average content creator to upload separate
MOBI and KF8 files for their books at some point. There's just too many irreconcilable differences between the KF8 and MOBI content built from the exact same source, IMO. Too many situations where making the KF8 really shine, will really botch up the fall-back mobi.
If not, the creative crowd may have to come up with a tool to stitch together an optimized MOBI with an optimized KF8 for uploading.
I'm already experiencing situations where the compromise to "make it work" for both formats results in two inferior products.
