Interesting observation. So if in the MIT demonstration the glass dielectric would have been baked in an oven to get rid of all the moisture on the surface, then the leyden jar would not work as a capacitor? On the other hand if it is really the moisture that retains the charge, then instead of a metal plate, one only needs a "charging" metal wire contacting the glass because the "conductive" glass will take all the charges that comes from the wire (let say up to break down).
