  Exactly.  Keeping everything "live" is not acceptable, regardless of how
good your storage is.  The latencies involved in accessing offline systems
is a feature, not a bug: It is much harder to accidentally destroy an
offline copy than it does to destroy an online one.  If multiple offline
copies are stored in different locations inside locked vaults, accidental
destruction becomes very hard indeed.  :-)
