Oh man I'm with you on the vulnerability of the Cloud!  Back up your 
important stuff on two or three different (currently-playable) media and 
store them off-site (in one or more places).  Refresh as needed.

And wait until the majority of people have all their personal photos in "the 
cloud" and something goes very wrong like a cyber-warfare attack or
something. I don't believe data can be "permanently" backed up in a way 
where it's easily
retreivable like a printed book or black and white photo negative. It's much 
more a hope and pray
thing with digital data, no matter how "fail safe" one thinks his system 
might be.
