Do not (or optionally do) copy the space permissions to an archive space

It was triggered by the situation, when someone is using the Move strategy, then the links pointing to the archived pages become valid if the user has space permission to the original space.

    When the option Hidden is ticked in the Archiving Configuration, the archived space does not keep view permissions for groups copied from an original space.
    It would be only visible for Confluence Administrators and space admins. 

    Reason: people are not likely to check a space name where a currently viewed page is located. They might not be aware that they see an outdated page in an archive space.

    Disadvantage: broken links in an original space directed to an archive space. It should be space admins task to not direct readers to outdated content.
