FWIW, the site even then did not claim that Palm software is CrossWire,
but listed it in an admittedly more confusing fashion than it is listed

Owning a epub reader I can not see a less useful way for studying the
Bible than using epub. The first thing I did was rooting it and
installing And Bible on it to have a decent study tool.

epub appears useless to me as a format for anything other than reading
unidirectionally without any serious referencing forward and backward.

That said, some publishers might indeed be happy for us to produce epubs
too, but I have neither time nor inclination to work in that direction.
If you want to produce a converter say OSIS to ePub or USFM to ePub and
this converter works well, I am sure we could offer epubs to these
publishers for their further use. Whether we would offer them ourselves
for download is another question. I have no opinion on.
