Can we open a Word document or a pdf in 50 years without conversions first? Every expert will say no, with time a lot of data will become inaccessible. The consequence: a destruction of capital and knowledge. University repositories are working on a transition to XML, and you can be part of this proces by choosing an XML-workflow when working on the lay-out of your publications or dissertation.
