huh? I might be missing something. It is perfectly possible to create a UA which deal with ePub content. Just stating the obvious below

The UA Request 

   GET /path/bovary.epub HTTP/1.1
   Host: www.example.com
   User-Agent: Web-ebook-reader
   Accept: application/epub
   Accept-Language: fr

The server Response

   HTTP/1.1 200 OK
   Accept-Ranges: bytes
   Content-Length: 1234567
   Content-Type: application/epub
   …

> It's not Web content any more.

It *is* Web content. The fact that browsers can't unpack it is completely unrelated to the nature of the content. Any client can be developed to process it. 
It is indeed not HTML5 content.
