I want to mark them in a way that I can use to do anything. Currently on Feedbooks we do real footnotes for PDF, inline notes for Mobipocket & ePub. I'll change this behavior to end notes for Mobipocket & ePub in the upcoming weeks. And once ePub finally get true footnotes, I'll switch it to true footnotes.
The good part is that I won't have to manually process all the files. Since I've marked them correctly as footnotes (and not just a link to an anchor), I can process them the way that I want.
