Web archiving should not be on by default, nor it sould be off by
default :)
It simply shouldn't be an extension, nor in menus.

How to do, then?
Propose a "WEB archive" MIME type in the File->SaveAs... dialog.
It's where users expect to find it: they _save_ the page, not only the
page, but all the elements _as_ a web archive.
Why find this in Tools, then!

And as we are at it, I recently found a reader for the MS web archive
format. It would be cool to present a "MS only WEB archive" type.

And, as we also are at it, why WEB archive can archive a WEB page with
all images/CSS... while offline, and File->SaveAs... only success to
save the nude HTML page... only when online?
