My big concern about this is that as soon as the archiver starts
editing the contents of the archive, they're responsible for the
archive contents because they're acting as an editor.
If they don't edit, then the words are merely the responsibility of
the original posters.
In my mind, this is akin to the current status of the Internet as a
common carrier: the owners of the backbone machines don't have any
responsibility for the packets that they move.
