I see Bitcoin as primarily a ledger system. Since the bitcoin protocol
allows additional data to be included in the registered transaction, one
could layer anything requiring a permanent record on top of it. Transaction
fees (in BTC) would be the only BTC requirement. After, of course, figuring
out the details of shoehorning whatever you are wanting to record into the
available space.
