How important is it that SC works on Wayback Machine etc?

This is in regard to routing and rendering. Client side routing pretty much dooms Wayback machine support - Google should still be able to index it because it executes javascript, but not all archiving services do.

Client Side routing is good for Offline Support and may be a little smoother.
Server side routing can provide much better support for javascript-disabled devices. Offline can still be supported by emulating the routing in the service worker.

Anyway the basic question is in the title: very important? not important? Thoughts?


What really matters is that the texts and data are preserved, the UI doesn’t matter. Can we submit the content directly, I wonder, without having to rely on their crawlers?
