Anyway, why not base it on epub? As a matter of fact, now with Webkit bundled as part of QT it would be very easy to create an epub viewer and editor that's OS and cross platform. Then it's just a question of adding plugins to convert from various other formats to epub.
Thanks for your feedback.

First, an update on what happened with OpenReader.

Second, I was one of the primary co-authors of the IDPF specs which underlie ePub (OPS/OPF/OCF), so, yes, I am quite aware of ePub and greatly encourage developers to begin building ePub reading systems.
