< If you create a system that is "cumbersome and time consuming" where
the risk is low, the cost is high, and the operational need is minimal,
you may create a situation that could undermine efforts to achieve
results where the need is truly required. This applies regardless of
media or technology.>

Absolutely.  This is also true in the paper world, as I pointed out.
The traditional RIM approach is to determine "risk, cost, and
operational need" when designing the destruction/deletion process,
including how we group the individual records to avoid the cumbersome
and time consuming aspect of individual application.
