But obviously this is the type of problem which is easily solved with more careful programming to detect and handle format variations, so let's wait and see if the Kobo team has what it takes.
Not allowing dictionary and highlighting on the Kobo seems like an obvious business decision. The Sony readers have no issue with allowing you to look up words or highlight on sideloaded books.

On the 650 and 350, all books are sideloaded.
