Hi Eliot,

The EPUB associations was added to the Info.plist of the Oxygen.app. To 
remove it you have to Ctrl-click(or right click) on the Oxygen 
application icon(Oxygen.app) in Finder and from the pop-up menu select 
Show Package Contents. Then navigate to the Contents directory and open 
for editing the Info.plist file. You can open it with either the 
'Property List Editor' or with 'TextEdit'.
Search for "EPUB" and you should find the section for EPUB files. Remove 
or comment the entire "dict" element that associates the 'epub' 
extension. This will prevent Oxygen from re-associating itself with EPUB
