It’s an interesting question, I would be very interested in what you come up with, if you are able to share it.
A few years ago I wrote a little piece  about the grass roots efforts to collect and re-publish content that Jonathan Gillette and Mark Pilgrim pulled offline when they committed "info-suicide" a few years ago.
Also, here are a couple other stories that may be of interest:
* Rhizome (New Museum) have been archiving artists' web content .
* Museum of Modern Art in New York has been collecting their own exhibition sites. 
Perhaps those stories aren’t grass roots enough. But they aren’t national libraries. I did take the liberty of forwarding your question to a new discussion list that is just getting started up called web-archives . I hope that was ok.
