I believe sgran's question was intended for Charles' proposal that is
basically more time consuming than declassifying.

And yes, the benefit of my proposal is that everything that can be
automatically detected as not to be made public (following the
guidelines of the GR, if you wish) can be buried without hesitation.
If people start asking for the non-disclosure of their messages in
other languages or any other way that prevents an automated process
then it is their problem. They would be fighting against their own
