Network traffic has scaling costs just like storage space.  If we'd made the
decision to not store pristines and you had to go to the server for pristine
copies then the discussion here would be reversed.  Someone would be asking why
we don't just store pristines and pointing out how disk space is cheap compared
to the cost of converting their entire network to have more capacity.  Can't
make everyone happy all the time.
