However, it appears from what you said that ePub3 won't be widely available for quite a while.
I don't expect too, only for niche products. To be honest, ePUB3 has some benefits for certain types of books like academical books, cookbooks and children's books.
For the majority of books it will not bring an improvement. Since all ePUB3 readers are required to also support ePUB2, there are no objections in using ePUB2 when possible.
