The documents belonging to the container should not be available directly
from the server, except when they are served via a server extension that
goes to the container to get them.  This effect should be easy to achieve on
the server side.

A site that uses this feature is likely to be fragile. It will have to have
z.html both in the archive and available directly from the server, in case
z.html is requested before the load of the archive has finished. And if
those copies ever get out of sync you're in very big trouble, because
depending on the context, either the archive version or the direct version
is likely to consistently win the load race, so just occasionally some
clients will get the wrong version. This seems like a highly error-prone
design.
