It's how the web should have been built, decentralized and thus not dependent on a client-server model, with each file having its own unique address so it can survive and be easily located or archived even if the original web site is lone gone.

Just for the record, decentralized systems ARE client-server models too. Just because the servers are distributed and work in parallel, you still use a client to connect to a system of "nodes" which is a hip new word for server. Also, not sure what you are saying "easily located if website is gone" do you mean for instance, if the hashed-link from ipfs was linked in a website, that it would remain clickable when the website went offline? Cause the same could be said for a download link in any general-purpose cloud host like a dropbox link for example. If for instance, the entire chain of nodes holding the data were to go down, your file would not be downloadable. Which is equally as likely as a cloud provider going down.
