I think the difference with Bookeen is they did the development work to get Mobipocket working in their Boo reader. If you want Mobipocket to do the development work they probably want some assurance they're likely to see profits from it. I'm just speculating like everyone else in the thread though.
I doubt that Mobipocket would develop a reader for the Sony because they probably don't see future sales from the effort. I would view it as a benefit to the Sony customers so they can read the books they've already bought but Mobipocket would probably play second fiddle. The question you'd have to answer for Mobipocket is "If you wanted to buy Mobipocket why did you buy a Sony reader that you knew didn't support it?"
The alternative would be for them to allow Sony to do the development work and I'll go into business selling pig wings when Mobipocket does that.
