[My apologies in advance if this is a FAQ.]

I have a bunch of Org files in which I have tasks some of which involve
doing something for work (trivial or non-trivial), and some of which
involve doing something for home (trivial like picking up laundry or
more important like doing a call to a company that needs to be logged).

My question has to do with archiving.  I archive my tasks to separate
archive files.  What I'd really like to be able to do is to identify
some tasks as being worth archiving (calling a company to request them
to fix a billing error, for example), and some of which are not (picking
up the dry cleaning, returning library books).

Does anyone have a technique for marking tasks so that they get
electively archived when one uses one of the archiving commands?

Hmm, this really seems to make sense only if you are using a command that scans the buffer for DONE tasks and archives all of them. Is that what you do?

One possibility is to give tasks their own ARCHIVE property which could point to a garbage file for boring tasks.

I myself archive everything. I don't care how big the archive gets because I only need to look at it if I need to find something back. Who cares how big this file is.
