Re: ..... and when I think about it....

Then you need to read Wilhelm. Who, in their right mind, would EVER take manufacturers word? Cibachrome was rated at 26 years, same as Epson Colorlife - now replaced. Modern ink/paper combinations now go into the 100-200 range under the same testing procedures. Time marches on! And yes, I have some 25 year old Cibachromes I printed that are starting to fade under the mat edges.

You trust HP and Epson when it comes to archival ability? While I
haven't read Whilhem on this matter, I would be concerned about
taking manufacturers claims to heart. Dyes are quite fugitive, and
the oldest Epson printer is not very old.
