But, even if your do print everything onto archival film, heck I would like to print MY digital images onto archival film for storage, that's one copy, versus the 300 copies needed for analog MP projection.

I wonder if a good business for Kodak, you burn a CD of digital images, ship it off to Kodak, they put them onto the archival print film, and send you back a set of slides. Even at $1 per image, it would be reasonable. Especially if you have images you don't want to lose. I think for still images, positives that are mounted are safest, in that a stack of images would not touch each other.
