I think the point is that users no longer have the capability to extract data from a floppy, even if that data is easily readable. I certainly don't have a 3.5 drive, much less a 5.25, and who knows if the floppies at my parents' house are still readable.

I have an old 8" floppy disk with some of my old IBM Series/1 code on it. Needless to say it is staying on it.
