The photographic reproduction should only complement the edition, which as a rule should not aim at reproducing the paleographic peculiarities of the original sources from which it was made. Even when a source exists in only one manuscript (or printed book) reproduced in full (in print or in electronic form), I believe it is advisable to provide a modern edition as well.

the Max-Planck Institute for History of Science in Berlin for their online edition of 
mechanical works by Galileo Galilei. Perhaps they took inspiration from it, who knows.
