Interestingly, I found "Keeping Bits Safe: How Hard Can It Be?" by David 
Rosenthal in the November Communications of the ACM just released.

It does discuss data retention at the centuries level, but unfortunately 
does not consider the moon-based strategy proposed by Rob.  Nonetheless 
is a good read for any out there who are now interested in this area. 
However, I do wish flash (or any technology besides normal 3.5in hard 
drives) was considered.  I would expect dormant flash-based technology 
to last quite a while at controlled temperatures.
