I'm not talking about extra features of ePub 3. I'm asking why make ePub 3 that doesn't use any ePub 3 only features. That doesn't need to be ePub 3. That's easier to make as ePub 2. What advantage does ePub 3 give in this circumstance?

The problem for ePub 3 is that most ePub reading software doesn't implement ePub 3 enough or hardly at all. Take all those old Sony Readers out there. They'll never support ePub 3. One of the real reasons that ePub 3 has not taken off is Adobe and their new DRM. That forces people to stick with ADE 2.0.1 which is not ePub compatible.
