Lightroom Desktop: Export the contents of a cloud library to other "clouds" (asset storage)

While there is no doubt that the Adobe Lightroom Downloader is a good utility for downloading and backing up one's cloud photo library outside of local storage originals, it'd be grand if Adobe could consider linking to other cloud systems to export photos directly to them - for example, Backblaze B2, Amazon S3 or Google Storage Buckets.  This way, snapshots of the entire library can be stored online, providing additional peace of mind in case Adobe's cloud service has any wobbles that could result in data loss and having to re-upload tens or hundreds of thousands of photos again. 

My biggest complaint about cloud products these days is lock-in.  Not having the ability to easily move data between different cloud services.  Apple is pretty bad at this, although they have made some improvements recently which allow an iCloud Photo Library to be exported to Google Photos.  Still, however, I feel this isn't enough - hence support for object storage.

@mbdrake76 Thanks for the idea. The forum does not automatically apply a "vote" to your post so don't forget to click the green arrow in the upper left.

Gets my vote too, the limited backup options are a concern.
