I fully expect to be pulling my hair out, by the handfuls, before Spring of 2014, having to use one type of coding for footnotes on X, and one for Y, and a third for Amazon. My seriously devout prayers to the God of Bezos is that they refine media queries, it's my only hope not to take up permanent residence in Bellevue.
I'll keep my fingers crossed for ya, Hitch, but I don't know... I'm not picking up a very good vibe about the whole thing.

I agree, I do not have a good vibe too. All the components and ideas are there, but the implementation is different for all. Wording the specifications more enforcing is one things, but certain bigger companies will still implement as they please. After all, a major part is about binding your clients to your platform....
The result is that e-books (non-pdf) are stuck mostly with novels and alike. Almost all other kind of books are more or less locked to a vendor-specific format.
