The only disadvantage I can see would be an added layer of complexity
to the archive-refreshing code. Because there is now support for async
refreshing, it is not a simple matter of doing a loop over the urls.
I'm not saying it would be horribly complicated (in fact, I'm
perfectly willing to do it myself).
