Just to clarify, in terms of Preservation Repositories, or the preservation 
service provider model, we don't envisage user deposit in these 
repositories. Instead, a harvesting method is likely to be used. Of course 
it's possible these services will create new versions, by migrating 
formats, or updating metadata, but these would be under controlled, managed 
conditions. That's the point of Preservation Repositories, a controlled 
environment, based on an agreement between the IR and the preservation service.
