Learn how to use two applications instead of one. Complicate my workflow by using two apps instead of one? Why? If I want to change something in the Scrivener project, I would need to redo the formatting in the second tool. Why would I want that? I makes no sense at all.
I would like Scrivener to go back to its root, and be the best software for fiction writing and stop pretending and trying to be what it is not -- screenwriting, science paper, or multimedia organization tool. Focus on novel writing, give us tools for collaboration, revision, etc.

Let Scrivener exist as the great tool for writers that it is. Let it export to a separate L&L program that formats the writing for electronic publication.
I'd love to hear what those who have experience using Scrivener for epub think about this.
