re: Besides, the world is not mutable. We can't change the here and now. We can only act on it now to change the future.
 

Sure but that's just a way to express the same problem: if you act now to change the future, you lose a record of the now you used to have.

We work really hard to preserve physical stuff: records, photos, certificates, manuscripts, paintings, physical artifacts. They decay over time if we don't take care of them. Why make our information systems simulate this part of the world? We should help them preserve things, too.
