Emacs is the extensible, customizable, self-documenting real-time
display editor.

Have you ever experienced a problem with Emacs making incorrect coding
system changes when you do that?  If so, submit a proper bug report.

You could just define a keyboard macro that does what you need (e.g.
`f C-x C-w C-x k'), name it, then bind it to "C" in Archive Mode's
local keymap.

(add-hook 'find-file-hooks
          (lambda ()
            (when (and archive-subfile-mode
                       (let ((case-fold-search nil))
                         (string-match "\\.exe\\'"
                                       (aref archive-subfile-mode 0))))
              (setq buffer-read-only t))))
