Hi, David,

I read this that the anodize itself is deteriorating. I've never seen 
that. Could you elaborate.

If that is what you meant, there is another one to add for some 
videotapes (I've never seen it for audio or instrumentation). The foam 
pad on the INSIDE of the flange(s) is (are) deteriorating.
