Only with a lot of manual corrections.

I use the "raw" XML export, a bunch of XSL templates and a shell script, but 
still need to put stuff in place manually (i.e. everything that’s just visually 
formatted like the inner title and imprint).

I’m working on enhancing my workflow to at least succeed with epubcheck. I’ll 
probably need more than XSLT to e.g. check for image files (since I don’t use 
the file extension in ConTeXt, the XML processor can’t know if it’s a JPEG, PNG 
or PDF) etc. Maybe use Python instead of Shell + XSLT.

Our eBook distributor (BookWire) has even higher demands or checks better than 
the official epubcheck. (There are even example files in the consortiums’s 
GitHub that don’t validate.)
