Why would you archive a product version?

Could someone tell me why I would archive a JIRA project version? I was hoping it would minimize search results (e.g. you could not find an issue in an archived version) as this would make search results more relevant. But, it doesn't do that. I'm struggling with why it would be important to use this feature.

When you create or edit an issue in the project, archived versions won't appear in the list. It just prevents users from using the version once archived.

You will still be able to search issues using archived versions because some issues already has that value on it.

Thanks. I had hoped there was a way to reduce the searching...but, guess not.

It's interesting, though, with Tempo. Tempo will not pull in time on issues associated with an archived version...learned that the hard way when trying to pull some reports for finance.
