As people discover that it is easier to remove DRM from epub than Kindle, I think you will find as more people become savvy, they will buy epub. It will be hard to determine though - the market for Kindles will change because Walmart and Target are no longer selling them.
Stripping DRM from Kindle books is just as easy as Epub, using the plug ins for Calibre. Exact same steps, exact same amount of time.
