In my org file I have a mix of "actionable" items (TODO items) and informative items (notes, references and etc). Normally I only archive TODO items when they are done, and don't archive informative items (since most of them have some long-term value). So, can we add a new variable to "org-archive-todo-only" to control the behavior of following functions:

1. org-archive-subtree
1) when org-archive-todo-only is nil, behave as it does now, with a little bit modification: - if the current heading is a TODO item and org-archive-mark-done is nil, check whether it is in a "DONE" state. If not, prompt for user confirmation. 2) when org-archive-todo-only is t, if the current heading is a TODO item, behaves the same as 1). if the current heading is NOT a TODO item, prompt for user confirmation.

2. org-archive-all-done
    1) when org-archive-todo-only is nil, behaves as it does now
2) when org-archive-todo-only is t, only checks the headings that are a TODO item.

Without the change to those functions, I have to be very careful not archiving something I don't want to.

I put in an advice by myself to change the org-archive-subtree behavior as above, but I can not do it with function org-archive-all-done. And I also think this may be an improvement that makes sense for many people, hence the proposal/request.

Thanks a lot for comments and consideration of the above.
