I imagine the notion is that if you are using HSM what do you gain from
archiving so why do it...

The traditional answer would be to reduce the number of files in the
file system, but with faster backup clients and now policy based
reconciliation that requirement should be much reduced.

That is not as useful as you might imagine. With the smart recalls that
TSM 6.3 can do if you have the space you are probably better recalling
them before the backup.
