Actually, the true zen[1] way to do this is to use ACHIVE anyway
and change your brain to accept that ARCHIVE does not mean the
thing is archived at all.  Or do

(setq org-archive-tag "KEEPCLOSED")


The side effect of this is that stuff in these trees ill never
contribute t the agenda - but if it is setup stuff, you
probably do not care....

These solutions will work if the subtree does not contain stuff
relevant for agendas.....

[1] The book of knowledge defines Zen as:
Zen emphasizes experiential wisdom in the attainment of
enlightenment. As such, it de-emphasizes theoretical knowledge
in favor of direct self-realization through meditation and dharma practice....
