"My Archives" is just a view on the game database. What a player sees in that view has no impact on what games other people can see; I don't imagine this will ever change.
Many people may want to have three classifications of games: active games, finished games of continuing interest, and finished games of no continuing interest. "My Games" serves the first purpose; they would like "My Archives" to serve the second. Other people, yourself included, I think, export their finished games to a database and can classify them endlessly there. I can see why you don't see any point in another subarchive.
Actually I think the best solution would be to add a 'comment' field and allow sorting on that field. Those who want to forget some games could put 'ZZZ' or similar in the comment and let them fall to the end of the list. Others could put an opening classification code there, or whatever they like.
