I think you might be misunderstanding Erik's point.

He's not arguing that it's okay for errors to stay in the database
forever. He's saying that users make mistakes, and that even though
they can correct those mistakes for the future, the original mistake
stays around forever, and that's a *bad* thing. He's on your side :-).
