RMS's Complaint about AI being down

I have been screwed by this numerous times.  It goes without saying that
the AI machine should not be required for the use of a LISP machine, and
as long as this situation is likely to be rectified within a few months,
further complaints/comments will be witheld...(I mean "required for use"
in a broader sense than simply having to set file-default-host, namely
that many support (database) files, documentation, sources, etc are only on AI.
Presumably some things like documentation could be distributed to other
machines  -- but it would be a major convenience if one could define
default seach paths for files so that if AI was down, FONTS;FONTS WIDTHS
for instance, would be automatically loaded from MC without kludgey special
case code for each instance).
