IMO continuity of hosting and comprehensive archival (for the record)
are important but orthogonal.

Going back to the start of this thread, has long term
archival expertise. I don't see any need for formality or ceremony
before initial contact. IMHO it'd be cool if a volunteer at least let
them know what was happening and discovered whether they might be able
to help with long term archival. (This contribution would not require
commit karma ;-)
