It is not all that surprising to me. Unlike KF8, which was released in pretty much its final form, KFX is being improved iteratively. Less commonly used features, such as table captions, have yet to be supported.

For some reason HTML table support is one of the last e-book features to be implemented in KFX. The initial Kindle firmware with KFX, 5.6.5, did not support tables at all. Subsequent firmware releases have have added support for table features incrementally. Even the Kindle firmware released this week, 5.8.8, has further improvements to table handling according to the release notes.

Somebody mentioned way back in this thread that the conversion to KFX of ebooks already in the Amazon catalogue appeared arbitrary. But having read your post, I would think the selection is not arbitrary at all, that Amazon is selectively converting ebooks to KFX depending on which elements are present in the ebook. So it's likely they simply started with ebooks that did not make use of any special formatting, forgoing those with elements not yet fully supported. As more capabilities are added to KFX, more ebooks will be converted to the new format.

Another batch of KFX only manga features landed today. And they increased speed of page turning and Panel View even more.

I came across Amazon documentation for Ion, the data format that KFX is based on, at https://amznlabs.github.io/ion-docs/.

Reference implementations of Ion in Java, C and Python can be found at https://github.com/amznlabs.

Excellent. Hopefully it will help in overcoming the obfuscation/encryption.
