Empty custom post archive page produces a 404 error

Hello everyone,

This has been an issue I think for a while, I tried searching but couldn't find a ticket. If you create a post type, and specify it should have an archive, everything works fine, however, if there are no results, the page defaults to the 404 error.

This is a problem for custom posts because if you use it to add live conferences to your site for example, you might run into situations where there are no upcoming items, or only drafts, so the default query on the page would not have an results.

I believe the solution should be to not go to the 404 page, but use the same template file, as we can use if (have_posts) to determine weather there are posts or not. Technically this isn't a page not found, it's a page without any items on it.
