Well, although the last question looks like it might be extremely
difficult to answer...I see a quite simple answer. Each individual
holder of information will...in fact, to some extent, MUST...decide
for him/her/itself what is worth preserving and what isn't. This only
becomes complex if/when we create some sort of "ultimate preservation
facility" equipped to properly provide long-term storage for ANYTHING
containing information...and then it takes on aspects of what might
be the case if/when some sort of "ultimate health facility" is created,
allowing the cure of any ill...but with a very limited capacity
for clients!
