So if I buy an epub version of a book, I will still be able to read it a 
decade from now? (Assuming I copy my backups to modern media. But the 
format will still be readable even if I change readers.)

Yay! my dead-tree library is huge and also incomplete. It's on my list 
of things to test. I have heard that there epub isn't a single standard 
(much like html), but it's still a good start.
