[LAU] [OT-ish]: uploading / moving to archive.org

I noticed some pieces announced on the list are hosted on archive.org
So now apparently 'anyone' can upload their content to archive.org 
applying a CC license?

It looks like archive.org has gone a long way with audio since I last 
checked and has lots of very nice features (at least from my point of 
view) such as html5 player, direct links to audio files, waveform diplay 
etc. [1]

Given that soundcould (where I have some stuff on) doesn't work on my 
Linux browser since months (and it has some really annoying 'features' 
like unprompted/unexpected/unavoidable "autoplay"), moving everything to 
archive.org and sticking to it for future content seems very tempting 
(not only from the technical point of view of course).

Any reason why one *shouldn't* do it today?

Opinions and ideas welcome.
