If markdown is suitable, then you can end up with both epub and context at the end. Or if using TEI or docbook, you can write a map file (something I have been trying to do) and typeset the xml file directly with context. I'm always happier knowing that I can get as many different output types from a single source as possible.

For a second, much simpler, project I was thinking about producing EPUB. I rather use only one environment (TeX, in this case ConTeXt and the Jove editor and make) and rather not work in multiple environments. So, for me, the start is ConTeXt.

in that case use a lot of structure (like \startchapter instead of 
\chapter and \startitem instead of \item) and use the xml export as it 
can be converted to html easily
