Bib users would need a client to avoid abusing inproxy.
Though a client would offload from the bib.

There doesn't seem to be much of a data loss issue now,
papers with broken links are still refindable and fixable
if searched for hard enough, no?

But it might be said there's organization, maintenance, and
wider audience utility issues with current bibs.

- Once a better bib gets made, someone should consider
pushing the dataset into IPFS, gnunet, storj, whatever.
Object hash deduplicated systems among them are storage
efficient, no matter how many people push the same thing.
- Since most video presentation data exists only on youtube
(aka: google) at their whim, I assign high risk of loss to that
community corpus. It's a mess. All projects should be publishing
local copies of theirs for mirroring. Also, it's hard to autodedupe
down from youtube since they embed uniques per download / view.
- Projects should self host, or at least dual home themselves,
in their own overlays. for reference and other uses.
