Sorry to have to disagree with this premise.  For me, as a conservator,
lack of concern for permanence only holds true for things which will not be
sold or traded for goods/services.

If you take money for it, you have an obligation to either insure that what
you sell will be around for a reasonable length of time, or to explain to
the purchaser that the art is ephemeral.
