It would be good if we could archive nodes for historical reporting purposes,
just like we have a un-manage ability, being able to archive a node so that when we need to we can go back in time.
the idea was spawned by this discussion
it would also be could if npm could automatically archive a node when the vendor / model / serial number changes
and since the node is an "archive" node not an "active" node the archive node should not count towards the licence count.
