It always seems as if the biggest company in the business has to do things different from the rest. But that's another topic.
Are you seriously suggesting that Amazon's lack of support for ePub puts them at a commercial disadvantage? Given Amazon's complete domination of the ebook market, it's ePub that's the "minority" format, in sales terms.
