I would say too structured, since it makes you provide both a ToC manifest and a navigation manifest that necessarily must include almost identical information ;) Of course, depending on a simplified browser for your document viewing and having lots of secret failover modes to handle poorly formatted documents makes the structure less meaningful than it ought to be.

what mean with not being structured is that clever css trickery can hide 
weird structure

i have a style somewhere that typesets an epub document (directly) but 
when testing an epub file from somehwere it found out that there were 
artifacts like

<H1>1</H1><H3>Chapter title</H3>

so i decided not to spend too much time on it and only bother with epub 
if it comes to me as project
