We've discussed creating an EAD > EPUB stylesheet here at Yale, but
haven't had time to pursue it. I think that to do it well will
require a re-imagination of how we lay out the <dsc>. Tabular
displays don't work that well in EPUB given the gamut of screen sizes
that need to be accommodated.
Have a crack at it and share with the list when you're done. This
could be very exciting, and something I'd be happy to help with along
the way. Once you have something working put it up on Github so lots
of us can hack on it..

I'm guessing probably not, since finding aids are mostly things people don't download to read in their free time, but on the off chance there's a lurking need/wish for it someplace, I thought I'd ask.
