If I have two or three e-readers and I want different conversions (or maybe different embedded font for each) without having to do a conversion before uploading the books, then all versions need to be on the HDD.

At this time, my calibre library contains 310 books. It's 410MB. Adding the AZW3 versions would take it up to around 850MB or so. If the library contained 3000 books, it would be 8.5GB. Add another two formats for a library of 17GB.

In my opinion, 17GB of data is insignificant on today's terabyte-sized hard drives. Many current games are larger than that.

That is your opinion; there isn't an option to embed fonts and add extra CSS for nothing.
