In practice if WM-UK are able to partner with either the Wellcome
Library (I'm hopeful after my behind the scenes chat with their Head
of Publishing) or some of the sponsored research projects with large
image assets, the WMF may find it usefully pre-emptive to go the next

if it has yet to be detailed (i.e. not just a backup procedure but
strategically planning for perpetuity).
