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

"He was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are
healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his
own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all." [Isaiah
