One thing no one has mentioned so far is that when the shield
oxidizes, the wires may no longer make good electrical contact with
each other.  I have heard that the coax loses it's shielding
effectiveness due to this, but I have seen no scientific tests.
Even if this is true, it is probably of no importance for
most ham applications, especially if the coax is connected to
an antenna.
