More elegant handling of site 'archive' options for MultiSite

Right now you have a few options with MultiSite blogs
Spam is easy to understand, and should be marking the admin and site as spam. Delete ditto, hi.
Deactivate and Archive are weird though and almost seem backwards. Deactivate means to turn OFF (like deactivating a plugin). Archive implies that you're making a site read-only.
Right now, if you change a site to 'deactivated' it actually shows up as DELETED and the front end has the message "This user has elected to delete their account and the content is no longer available." Clearly the verbage on the network/sites.php page needs to be updated (and perhaps the front end to 'This site has been deactivated.' to be consistant).
If you 'Archive' a site it kicks it to a paler pink in the sites.php page (though the 'Archived' text is white and nigh impossible for me to read) and the front end says "This site has been archived or suspended."
It's rather illogical there. Archive SOUNDS like it should be making things read-only (and turning off commenting and posting if possible). Otherwise it should just be 'Suspend', and at that point, why have two options that pretty much do the same thing from the front-end perspective?
