Enable deletion for archive engine.

The archive engine should obviously support deletion. It's somewhat ridiculous that it's prevented - seems almost like spin on a lack of an ability than a feature. There are often situations where you would like to archive data for a few years, a decade maybe but not necessarily "forever". So for those use cases (the majority) we're still left wanting. Live -> Archive -> Delete.

Wouldn't it be far more reasonable to have the ability to toggle whether deletes are allowed for a particular table perhaps upon creation only - or to be clearer supply effectively a copy of the archive engine with deletion disabled called perhaps the audit storage engine to facilitate this where needed?
