I'm not trying to change your mind here, but just pointing out that 
marketing doesn't need to be publically archived. Slightly less 
transparent, maybe, but when marketing has been called upon for maybe 
two tasks in the last year, I don't really feel open archives are a 
must... Since marketing would only be changing things at the behest of 
theforum (or maybe code), you'd still have a record of the initial 
request in the initial list, and the response back to that list.
