I definitely agree with you on this one, but I bet the logistics can  
be pretty complicated. For example, I use rely heavily on Sysmon's  
ability to handle fail-over monitoring on another server, but would  
one want to sync that history between the various monitoring servers?  
Also, how do you handle when the Sysmon daemon is down during a  
reboot or other maintenance? Assume the services were up the entire  

I guess it'd be easy to preserve if you just want a rough estimate of  
uptime, but trying to be able to measure to five-nines might be too  
much work.
