I recently got a new job in the national archive business here in Norway, because of this I've been given a unique opportunity to present LaTeX as a viable storage format for future documents in records and document management. While I think this is a great opportunity, I have troubles figuring out how to best sell this in to the boards and member archives that eventually will decide the faith of my suggestion.
My endgame here will be to get LaTeX as a storage format into Law. Hopefully we can make the future more manageable when we can deal with proper reproducible white formats (i.e.: tex, xml, svg, ASCII stl) instead of normalization and conversion from one brown file format (i.e. docx) to another (PDF/A) like we do today.
Here are hopes that someone here could aid me a bit on how I best can present LaTeX as such a storage format. What features or concepts could be critical for a successfull evaluation?
