Welcome to you all, this will only work with you involved.
1. Is there any time frame for copying from oGEC to nGEC? My understanding is that oGEC will still be accessible after it is frozen and selective copying can be done gradually.
2. Presently kmz files posted in nGEC will not be incorporated in GE layer but I understand that in future it may get incorporated in GE. In such a case there will be duplication of the placemarkers - the Blue 'i'.
1. > No. But nobody can know in what direction the decisions of the next team members at Google will be. Your understanding is correct. But how long, ...it is not clear - it is Google. )
2. > My opinion: Since the posts in oGEC will not be editable, they will get outdated soon. I don't think, after a decade, people using Google Earth all around the world will want an UN-interactive layer where almost every bit of information is proven wrong or deficient or defective or imperfect...etc...or, more of them "is changed". Google's response will be clear in my mind. So my answer to your question is "no".
FOOTNOTE: When saying "in future it [nGEC layers] may get incorporated in GE", it is not a promise. What I personally understand from those related wordings is that, we need to do our best before it is on the table. We need to remember that Google collects official data.
I have my hands in many pies but still I will try to examine all my Non F&G posts and will gradually move them in nGEC. As a matter of fact I have made two very recent posts in oGEC keeping in mind that it will be frozen on May 1 and my effort is to make as many posts as possible in oGEC for getting these incorporated in the GEC layer of GE.
KitsuneFox: syzygy - posts I have made here do not receive much attention. I may do a detailed writeup of the now lost Edgemont Park in PA, one of the first electrified trolley parks in the world, but still debating. I'm missing 1 key bit of information.
