They won't rot away as long as authoring tools (libraries included) keep on
generating invalid and proprietary output. I believe that applies to
Microsoft's authoring tools as well. It would be really helpful if Microsoft
(and all other authoring tools authors) would improve the output of their
authoring tools in this respect. That way there would actually be a chance of
that rot happening. In other words, I invite you to participate in the Web
Repair Initiative: <http://webrepair.org/>.
