Okay, but...

...if I take the epub and convert it to a mobi in Kindle Previewer, then upload it to KDP,then examine it, as you say, in all possible emulations in Kindle Previwer, then won't I be looking at the exact book file that will be distributed to purchasers of the book?

That's my justification anyhow. The real reason is probably that I did it that way the first time, and it worked, so I keep doing it. Why mess with success?
