Given the chance the print will survive being forgotten and re-found with low tech acccess, something not possible with digital files.

I think this is slowly going to change. In addition to going through our grandparents'/parents' garages and attics after they pass away, we'll now be sifting through their "digital" garages as well.

I don't think we'll have problem accessing something as ubiquitous as a jpg file 50 years from now.
