I suspect this might be a difficult (or at least tedious) problem to solve, but the mobi version of this book can be difficult to read on Kindle (touch); I need to read in landscape mode with the font size down really small to have a hope of reading the code examples, but then table layouts are often illegible.

I know that most/all programming ebooks suffer to some extent from these problems, and it must be hard to reconcile formatting issues between print and ebook, but it would be great if something could be done about it.

I agree, I have trouble deciphering the tables and diagrams on all devices.

I know this doesnt directly address the problem of mobi and kindles... but your best bet through the MEAP would be to stick to the pdf as your main format for reading. I suspect that most (all?) authors will write with the pdf format in mind... and then a separate team will take care of the translation to epub and mobi
