I've just added all my personal ePubs into Logos. To be honest, it's a bit frustrating having to convert them all into .docx first. Even though I can automate this via Calibre, the results aren't all that pleasing. Certainly, they're nowhere near as good as Vyrso manage with the automated ePub converter you've built for internal use.

Anyway, the suggestion is to put Vyrso's ePub converter into Logos.

Mark has always good ideas and this one is no different. ePub is a standard format and having Logos accept this as PB would be really nice. Also the core converter is already present within Faithlife as they do this conversion for Vyrso books (as mentioned by Mark).

Having this would allow us to move our own ebooks (not available on Logos/Vyrso) more easily into Logos.

Yes

+1 on this. 

There is a uservoice ticket for this suggestion as well; I don't know if those actually carry any weight.

Faithlife say they take those votes seriously. I've added my three votes :-).

Adding ePubs import would be a great feature!
I have Bible translations in my own language (Swedish) that is only available as ePub.
