Preliminary it is, being dated Nov 1, 2001.  Still, it's a good starting point.
In case this link has not yet made its way to ARSClist, here is the URL to some preliminary research on the matter carried out by the Smithsonian Center for Materials Research and Education: http://www.si.edu/scmre/mail_irradiation.html. Apparently there is a small task force working now on such things as collecting samples of materials to be tested by the company that was hired by the USPS to irradiate first-class mail and flats sent to zip codes starting with 202-205 and communicating with government entities (e.g., Office of Homeland Security) about the effects of irradiation on cultural materials.

We need to get more hard data on the way various materials are being irradiated and demagnetized via the many shipping services in the US.
