And what better way to start than with the W3-IDPF proposed specification for EPUB+WEB docs as a sample of an actual hybrid EPUB+WEB document.

In fact, the purpose of EPUB+WEB as outlined in this document’s vision is precisely the idea 5DOC.ORG is working hard to put into practice.

Our vision for EPUB+WEB is that portable documents become fully native citizens of the Open Web Platform. In this vision, the current format- and workflow-level separation between offline/portable (EPUB) and online (Web) document publishing is diminished to zero.

These are merely two dynamic manifestations of the same publication: content authored with online use as the primary mode can easily be saved by the user for offline reading in portable document form. Content authored primarily for use as a portable document can be put online, without any need for refactoring the content.
