To which, the venerable W3C replied "Cool URIs don't change":

Your criticism is invalid, given that the action that has clearly been taken here is "change my URIs so that in future they're under a domain I control instead of a domain someone *else* controls".

(Also, given the behaviour of search engines, "Pretty much the only good reason for a document to disappear from the Web is that the company which owned the domain name went out of business or can no longer afford to keep the server running." is a beautiful theoretical principle with no grounding in practicality.)
