That way I am 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?
Why would a mobi file be any more likely to corrupt than an epub? If you convert and check locally before sending you're less likely to find errors in the download.
