Look, there is only one approach to digital preservation: make tons of 
copies and put enough metadata and unique identifiers to know what you 
have in your hands and what is the copy of what else.

Of course, it does not work after a world-wide nuclear holocaust or the 
end of oil resources that creates permanent world-wide blackouts, but at 
that point, I think maintaining you cocoon application will not be your 
biggest concern anyway.
