Publishers don't have to sell their books to Amazon. They can focus on Barnes & Noble and cut deals with other online retailers and eliminate their contracts with mobi formatted books via Amazon. No one can stop them. They'd be wise to strike a two phased book print/digital print strategy with B&N and only offer the books in ePub 3.x format. Amazon can then be limited to a used book store.
