So people with substantial epub libraries could just strip them of DRM and move over to the Kindle ecosystem without a hitch. I know I've converted some epubs to mobi, but I prefer the way the epubs look and function.

Besides, as it is, there are certainly other places that one can buy .mobi books without DRM and Amazon isn't worrying about that affecting their business.
