I believe some of the content is useful for more than archival
purposes; it would need to be cherry-picked into the new destination.
For the rest of it, I agree, an archive would be nice.

I was a bit disappointed to see the the archive.org Wayback Machine
didn't to seem to have it. Looks we need to configure robots.txt and
in-page META robot directives to make sure it gets included by
crawlers such as archive.org. I hadn't thought about that until now.
