I agree with you in theory, JS, but can't afford to put it into practise.

The problem may come down the line when you someday replace your 505 and you have all these LRF and if you want to read/read any of them, you have to convert them instead of them already being done. LRF is dead. Sony has stopped supporting it. The T1 has no LRF support.
Or BookCat can simply keep a copy of the original epub when converting. Calibre does this automatically anyway, if memory serves. BookCat can check his calibre folder just in case, but I'm confident everything should check out.
