I'm not sure about the most recent, but older Kindles absolutely will not
handle ePub.  Also, if the goal is to get it into the Amazon store, I'm
pretty sure it's going to have to be in MOBI format.

Like I said, though, it doesn't have to be an either/or thing.  Plus, I'll
point out that all the source is right there, available to you, for you to
make ePub format documentation.  Knock yourself out.
