Not to mention that, if you want an EPUB, all the files would need to be unpacked, the EPUB created from scratch (directory structure, etc), all links would need to be changed, and if everything is done, the file would need to be repacked. While repacking an EPUB file is probably already in the Calibre API, combining all the KFX files into an EPUB-valid structure and rewriting all the links isn't. A completely new plugin would need to be written, debugged, and supported.
