All three are violations of strict accounting rules. We often talk about
"In the times of ink and paper", not graphite (pencils). Some
governments require the immutabiity of once written records.

So I see at least a better auditing system as a requirement before your
suggestions. The current logging would need a review. It should cover
all changes, not only simple transactions. ISTR business actions and
structural changes are not recorded.

About the future I almost agree with Johns suggestions.
