I think that the barrier for epub & other formats is that he couldn't expect to be able to DRM them and have Sony accept that on its devices. But he might be able to license the Kindle format to the other ereaders, and not have to bother with epub. It could be that the Stanza & other acquisitions have something to do with this.
