I wish Kent were closer -- I'd bet you a fish and chips I could tell the difference! )
I entirely agree - but given today's atmospheric pollution conditions, I'd be wary of giving a guarantee of archival permanence on ANY print (FB or RC silver gelatin, pigment-based inkjet, or anything else) unless it WAS behind glass - I wouldn't say this was hiding it, I'd call it vital protection!
