There isn't a reliable way of guaranteeing what version data you get back because of the variables involved. Really the only way you could do it is to only have this one plugin enabled, extract the isbn from the book (using the Extract ISBN plugin) and then do your metadata download.

As soon as other metadata download plugins are enabled, then all the factors of which isbn pool, which other isbn is chosen etc mean that it would be a lottery as to what happens. If a search is done by isbn against the website, there will be only one result - and no finangling by the plugin is going to be appropriate to attempt to bring back a different edition just because the isbn you started with isn't the ebook one.
