Most if not all readers are PDF compatible. For good or for bad PDFs will become the defacto format for all books. This is not the same situation as with iTunes, and even then their MP4 format is easily converted to MP3 (so much for encryption). The news of an Amazon-Google controlled world are greatly exaggerated.
