Part of the reason behind binary normalising everything that comes through the door is to be able to show that the original data object has not been changed by anything we do to it.

If we implement this suggestion, we would have to ensure that we can continue to show that the data objects are authentic.

Would building a mechanism for showing this authenticity be more expensive/complex/risky than just maintaining the status quo?

I am not suggesting that this feature request is a bad idea, just want to make sure that we remember about the need to prove that we are doing the right thing
