Default Provenance

Did not any bureaucrat in the White House ever hear of provenance? According to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Provenance :
Quote:
Provenance (from the French provenir, 'to come from/forth') is the chronology of the ownership, custody or location of a historical object.[1] The term was originally mostly used in relation to works of art but is now used in similar senses in a wide range of fields, including archaeology, paleontology, archives, manuscripts, printed books, the circular economy, and science and computing.

The primary purpose of tracing the provenance of an object or entity is normally to provide contextual and circumstantial evidence for its original production or discovery, by establishing, as far as practicable, its later history, especially the sequences of its formal ownership, custody and places of storage.
I think everybody is astonished first by the classified documents kept by Trump, and now similar classified documents found in Biden's previous office and house.

The real issue is not that they have been found, but that they were never missed!

So there is no system that keeps track of these sensitive documents, who has them and why they have not been returned.
It is really ridiculous that people worry about leaking secrets, spies and foreign agents when there is not a system that every museum of library has.
