Microcassettes happen. Not anyone's first choice, they just happen.
So do ultra-compressed digi-pens which might be worse. If it's out
there, it gets used. Then someone has to deal with it later.
That's why I'm soooooo in favour of common file formats on IT

we shouldn't be creating more jobs for people like me. There's enough
to last me my lifetime, but we should really be better organized.
