I don't think that people are very likely to need to turn archiving on
and off on-the-fly.  Your proposed solution introduces a great deal of
complexity (and risk of future bugs-of-omission, to say nothing of race
conditions) to solve a non-problem.  We have better things to be doing
with our development time.
