This is a very nice idea! I'd implement it and allow later access via
hashes (like This
would make sense, as identical pastes would just be stored in the same
place (it happens often that people paste the same stuff and it would
also be a direct way to be able to check if the paste hasn't lost
integrity along the way).

Given these pastes don't take up much space, it would actually be rather
trivial to do it.
Just some webform, taking in data, generating the hashes and a file in
some directory with name as the hash and content as the paste. nothing
more. :)
