More on the attack model would help:
 - is this for software running on your computer or a potnetial
   attacker? ie. "limit # of uses for a free demo of software"
 - is this for a senario of "limit the number of times a
   software/document can be extracted/installed"?
 - Often it's best to have most of this accumulator logic running on a
   system you can have control over.
