Technically, it does.

Mailman 3 has a pluggable architecture and supports multiple archives enabled site-wide and opt-in by individual lists.  HyperKitty is the default archiver, and the one we promote, but it doesn’t have to be the only archiver enabled.  In fact, we come with plugins for mail-archive.com and MHonarc.  It *might* even be possible to enable a standalone Pipermail and route messages to that if one were so inclined.  The choice of archivers is not mutually exclusive.

Practically speaking though, there just aren’t a ton of well maintained FLOSS archivers to choose from.  HyperKitty *is* well maintained.  Frankly speaking, Pipermail is not.
