My biggest concern is that this may become a barrier since the technologies to permit data to be read on only particular machines or with particular keys, or for certain periods, may make future data recovery impossible. So from a historical perspective all this information would be lost and become irrecoverable and future profits would be lost due to the possibility that the data cannot be transfered to a newer technology.
