Exactly. The only reason for making Kindle books different from Mobipocket in the first place was to create an exclusive format that only their device could support. If they really wanted a common format that could be sold for other devices, they already had it. Just sell Mobipocket books for the same price as the Kindle books.
They don't do that though, and it's not by accident.
