Is to control record creation.
If we’re not controlling record creation, we can’t control quality.
In practical terms, not having control of creation means records:
- Are likely to be in places we don’t know about or can’t control.
- Might not have sufficient metadata for us to judge their evidentiality.
To me, these are core problems that we’re all dealing with in records, I think it’s because we don’t have enough control over creation.
