What are the future issues with digital art?

SlypeLab makes art using a digital interface but not necessarily digital art. However this Project made me think of the issues with digital art that historians are struggling with these days. To view and conserve digital art, we always need a software that shows / plays it. These applications however get outdated very quickly and art historians worry about 'loosing' digital art over time. What could be the solution?
