Dead/Alive Annotation & Its Purpose

When i look at iNat records on GBiF, i see them all listed as HumanObservation.
In case a PreservedSpecimen , FossilSpecimen , LivingSpecimen or MaterialSample were the Basis of record for the iNat observation, these specimen and samples are almost certainly not (or no longer) available for further investigations. Which makes me wonder whether or not the implementation of such a BasisOfRecord field would actually produce useful data.
