Yes, having perfect images of original discs must be a good thing in the long-run but right now software for this platform is disappearing into the ether on a daily basis.
As already mentioned, we do only preserve unmodified sources to ensure we get what the publisher intended to be on the disk.

You can however do both: Keep the disks dry & cool, while you in parallel do installs to HD and backups to CD for the ones that can be installed.

In regard to authenticy, the latter can not be used for long term preservation.
