I am sure of it, but it might be further of than you might think. Also I have doubts about the potential quality. If you see in how many ways you can f*** up a Word document without a problem, it does not bode well...

Doubtful. I have seen reports about color e-ink for many years already. So far not much. I would not be surprised if dedicated e-books will remain over for example 5 year.

To be honest I make all kind of highlights and notes in PDF, but I never print them out. I almost never print anymore. In my experience there is less and less printing.

Would would anybody join Sigil and Calibre? They are two totally different programs with different usages. Not even to speak different programming languages.
Calibre is more a library management tool with some conversion capabilities and Sigil an ePUB creation/editing tool. Both totally different.
