Ohhhh, the circular logic is making me dizzy!

If you were addressing an ePub creator, and telling him not to create an ePub 3 because the device/reader support isn't there yet is one thing....

I understand you don't like the media support in the spec, but if they (as a company) have plans and priorities that include implementing the standard (which has been around for over a year) then who are we to tell them not to?
I'm not saying not to support ePub 3. But until ADE does, it's a waste of time. The problem is that ADE is the most used ePub reading software there is. It needs to support ePub 3 before it's worthwhile. If we have apps like Blufire supporting ePub 3 before it should be supported, then we'll get people making and releasing ePub 3 and that will do more harm then good as it will fragment eBooks. yes, I have an iPhone 5 and an iPad 1. But the point is, I want eBooks that I can read on these devices or my 650. I do not want to be forced to have to read on the iPad just because someone thought ePub 3 was a good idea when it's not.
