Two different things:
a) Crap content is crap content, regardless of the wrapper. Text or ePub, makes no difference.
b) A good rendering engine can render a nice text file, just as it can render a nice ePub file. If you aren't manually adding any formatting, there is nothing that converting it to ePub gives you that reading the text file in that nice reading app would give you.
