Who thinks the majority of brokerages will start charging a lot for back records, if they have them

This is where Peter the Packrat gets to chime in again.

My broker only charges a nuisance fee for older records, albeit the fee is large enough to be a nuisance.

Beyond that, what Peter said. Hitting up the broker for past records really ought to be just a one or two time occurrence to fill in a gap or to recover from a record keeping mistake. Hitting up the broker for past records ought not be routine matter.
