Last I heard, the plan is to decommission and donate all the hardware.
If WMDE wants, the Foundation can take the domain and keep the redirects
up indefinitely so that old links remain valid.
This is what we planned and why amette implemented the htaccess variant.
You can put it into your home and even if you remove all your stuff with burnbridges the
htaccess file will stay there if it has a labs url in it.
WMF can get the files and the domain and host the redirects.
