The thing is, Kobo could do away with Access if they updated to the current version RMSDK. What we have I think is RMSDK that's equivalent to ADE 3.x. If we had the latest RMSDK, we'd have all the ePub 3 features Adobe has added in.

Alternately, they could do their own handler for Adobe's ADEPT and stop using RMSDK. As far as I recall, the epub3 support in ADE was mostly cloned from the Readium code base.

With the spans in place, it does make it easier to select text and more reliable when remembering the location.
The progress and bookmarks rely on the spans. The id for the span you are up to is stored in the database. The bookmarks store the start and end span id plus the characters count within. If you don't have them, the best the progress will remember is the start of the chapter. Highlights don't get stored without the spans.

Surely, there are other methods of bookmarking/highlighting without changing the ebook itself?!?!? Other apps achieve this...

Yes, it can be done and is what is done for epubs. But, Kobo started doing this a long time ago and it probably seemed the easiest way. And, strictly, it is only for books from the Kobo store. They process books uploaded to the store into kepub to add the spans and a couple of other thing. Which effectively means it is their own format. And isn't that what Amazon does?

We can sideload books as kepubs, but Kobo doesn't officially support it for everyday reading. Nearly everything we know about producing them comes from looking at what Kobo does. The only things they publish about it is information for author/book creators for preparing their book for the store. And most of that is really how to make an epub that will work well after Kobo does their stuff.
