But, AFAIK that data is not used by any other viewers. What's more, if I edit and save a bookmarked EPUB in Sigil, the bookmarks and last read position are lost. My guess is this probably happens if other software rewrites the EPUB.
Given the data is a) peculiar to the calibre viewer and b) not respected by other software, then I'm not sure your argument is entirely valid.
You may well ask, so what's the alternative. I admit I can't think of any that are particularly robust or portable between different viewers and 'editors'. If the viewer data was stored elsewhere (database, metadata.opf, viewer.dat) and then the book content was changed, the result would be that viewer data would be out of synch with the content.
The calibre book editor has no provision to use the bookmarks that I set in the calibre book viewer, as in go to them. And the bookmarks are not 'adjusted' to reflect the changes I make in the book's content files. So after an editor session I can see the bookmarks I previously set in the viewer, but they don't seem to work, as in go to them. But the editor isn't fully developed, so perhaps a future version will address this issue
The ebook world is eons away from being within a bull's roar of the Code Complete nirvana :lol:
