Testing alternate format destination for xubuntu-docs

I am wondering about the use case: I typically need the documentation on
the system that I need documentation about. The only eReaders I am ware
of are fbreader and calibre.
fbreader is in the 14.04 rpos as version 0.12.10, their website claims
0.99.0 is in beta, so 14.04 seems to be lagging a bit, maybe? Similarly,
calibre is in my repo as version 1.25, the latest on the website is 2.10.
I have to ask: what's the point of releasing documentation in a format
for which no current reader is available?
Maybe there is a good reader for xubuntu and I don't know about it, in
that case, apologies.

Since we theoretically can export to EPUB from DocBook, what would it take to make e-reader friendly versions of the documentation?  Would we be willing/able to make xubuntu-docs for 14.04 and 14.10 available from xubuntu.org as a test we could receive user feedback on prior to the end of the Vivid cycle?  I don't have a full use case yet but wanted to throw the idea out there first before I lost it.
