Difference between Kindle and Cybook G3 profile?

I apologize if this has been discussed to death, but the terms are so generic I'm not getting good search results.

When I make an ebook in the MOBI format, calibre allows me to say I'm outputting for a Kindle or a Cybook or whatever.

What's the difference in the profiles? Can a MOBI file made specifically for a Kindle profile still work in the Cybook G3? Or vice versa?

The Kindle profile turns on various amazon specific features like chapter markers. The MOBI will probably still work on the G3, but if you're looking for universailty better to use the G3 profile.
