My thoughts exactly. Epubcheck may be limited, but it has its uses. I'm guessing Kovid's main objection is that people use it and think "if it passes epubcheck, all will be well" when it's likely that it won't be.

But that's the problem of the users, not the tool. Epubcheck makes no claims that it is the be-all, end-all epub checker.
