Is it known whether it's "safe" - multiple copies on multiple media across
more than one site etc.?
I can understand vendors not being ready / willing to release 'sensitive'
things like this - and it's their call, after all - but given the historical
importance then some reassurance would be nice that it's not about to vanish
from the face of the earth (accidentally or otherwise). Maybe that's a
question that the CHM, with their preservation hat on, can ask?
