A long-lived archive format that cannot cope with a
DVD is not of much use :-) And there's those dual-layer
8+GB things available now, and Blu-Ray (20GB??) soonish
and C3D may well eventually produce those 125GB recordable
things I read about a few years ago.

How hard is it to design a standard with no theoretical
size limit? I don't expect my RML380Z to be able to
cope with an image of a DVD, but I'd expect today's
(and tomorrow's) computers to have a good go!
