The one place I've seen this practice in force was the Washington and
Lee University Library.  Preservation Coordinator there (last I heard)
is Yolanda Warren (warren.y [at] fs__library__wlu__edu, 703-563-8662).  It's my
understanding that they adopted the practice for the same reasons you
mention: general resignation about the likelihood of successfully
barring beverages altogether.
