I'm totally in favor of requiring that X be done within 3 months to
indicate that you're still using your shelf, and then purging the shelves
after 6 months and throwing out/giving away everything on them.
If you can't visit NB once every three months, then you're definitely not
an active participant in the physical space who needs a shelf.
