Your thinking of EDGAR itself; i.e. mandated electronic filing. That is here to stay. Town Hall's EDGAR Dissemination Project is not directly funded by the US government -- rather, it has been funded by public (National Science Foundation, New York University) and private grants.
So the electronic filings will keep flowing into the SEC, and Mead Data will keep making zillions of dollars via its exclusive right to dissemimate via paid subscription, and those of us without the bucks will have to walk to the SEC public reference reading room (for me, that's about 800 miles).
WRITE TO YOUR ELECTED OFFICIALS! Insist that this data be made available to the public at large... it's OUR information.
