What limitations on sideloaded books?

I am about to order the Kobo Touch, but there is one thing I am wondering about. My ePub collection on the Kobo will be about 99.9999999999999% sideloaded (including many cbz).

Seeing a post about the highlight/dictionary not working on sideloaded books, I was wondering what alse doesn't work on sideloaded books. Things like the achievements/Reading Life aspect, or anything thing alse that won't work on non-kobo books?

If the achievements/Reading life works on sideloaded books I will get the Kobo right now. If not I have to fall back to deciding on the Kindle/Nook Touch/Sony

Actually achievements/sharing status on facebook work on side loaded books. As does dictionary. Highlight still doesn't work on Side load. I haven't bothered with other parts of Reading life as yet (such as sharing passages etc.). However, if highlight is not allowed, then I am not sure if this will work.

Highlighting of sideloaded books is definitely coming--which will then make posting the passages to Facebook etc possible as well.

Placed and order for a Kobo Touch (to Australia) from Borders.com, I hope it is sent. I am so sick of my Nook Classic with its (finger quote) 2 week battery life (another finger quote)

Is Nakaleen a reference to Babylon 5, by any chance?
