Yes, that is the chief problem. Whose interests take precedence, and who shall decide which? It's a problem that will probably go unresolved for quite some time. Another aspect of the problem is that, while we don't want to obstruct progress for every site where artifacts are found (some are less important, or not really all that important at all, because we already have good representative examples of the same artifacts), at the same time, we can't know whether we have an important find or not until the site has been thoroughly surveyed, excavated and analyized.
