That is exactly my fear too. Now we say "oh well, too bad that we loose some Mobipocket ebooks, but hey, ePub is becoming the new standard anyway, so let's move on."

But what if in 1-2 years time someone (maybe Steve Jobs??) invents a beautiful new ebook format, that renders ePub obsolete? Will Adobe allow us to read our drm-ed ePub ebooks on some Apple iTablet? History might just repeat itself...
