My big concern is over the principle that once these are made publicly digitally available, they will be easily tampered with.

Digital watermarking, digital signatures, heck, even a CRC checksum will go a long way to preventing forgeries. And if I'm not mistaken, these things will be on an "official" website somewhere, so if fakes start circulating it will be easy to point to the original.

And I quite agree as to the importance--as a non-Christian who studies ANE culture, this is an exciting and important step.
