Could be a problem.
I'm going to make a prediction here that this whole CFR Part 11 issue will
collapse in the area of statistical programming but will remain in effect
where people are using fixed systems to do safety reporting or analysis. And
that these fixed systems will get more expensive to maintain and cumbersome
as a result and people will be tempted to ditch them.
