But as for B&N, the DRM is irrelevant. What is relevant is that if you remove B&N's DRM, what you are left with is standard DRM. So yes, B&N counts toward ePub readership.
Except with B&N you don't know what is or isn't true Epub by your standards (just like with Apple). They don't validate the Pubit submissions adequately, so you must exclude all of B&N just like you exclude Apple.
Amazon's still winning.
