Could we solve the "achilles heel" concern by having an
organization like OCLC which archives all the
bibliographic records for 22,000 libraries take on the
Hashing/Time-Stamping service. They are disinterested
and not involved in any specific topic, have a robust
technological infrastructure and hopefully will be around
for a very long time. They have already existed 25 years
which is fairly long time in technology terms.
