I don't think one universal format will emerge any time soon... If you look at the music industry, one format never got standardized. You have iTunes with the AAC format, and then MP3 for pretty much everyone else (Amazon, etc.).
It looks like the same situation has developed for the ebook industry. Amazon has AZW/MOBI, everyone else has ePub.
