In the way you put it, there is no discussion possible. I do accept your
position, I do not agree with it.
What you write is more an article of faith then an argument why this is what
we do. Mathias, you can do better.
Actually, the museums should do better. There is discussion possible
on various topics, including research to identify the proper owners of
copyright and rights of usage. If the basic idea of a cooperation with
museums and archives is to liberate content, then it is not a matter
of faith to ensure that the content is actually liberated and not put
into a situation that compromises the whole idea of Wikimedia Commons.
