Tightening the bonds?

Art 21 Blog published my comments on Maxwell Anderson's deaccession principles:

Whether today’s curators should be bound by past curators' decisions is debatable (legislators aren’t), but it seems beyond debate that today’s curators should use Coaccession(tm) to care better for an expanded collection.

Coaccession can let museums reduce deaccessions by reducing financial reasons to have "Items for which the Museum is not able to provide proper storage or care." Cultural Titles(tm) can be forever practically, even if circumstances make undivided titles impractical.
