That's right Andrew - it was one of the items I had in mind when I posted the suggestion of setting up a register above. In that particular case, if it was on a list of items of interest, if anyone ever wanted to see it, or photograph it, or whatever, at least they'd know where it currently is. In the meantime perhaps we look for any opportunity to get it back over here - and into a proper archive (such as Wells Museum or the HDS). At least we'd then not lose track of it.
The point is a list takes up virtually no room; it's the best compromise if we don't have the resources to store the items themselves.
I don't see what's not to like, so it'd be grand if the CC would look at this possibility.
