I suspect deleting stuff generally requires rebuilding the archive
from scratch, which means the messages are renumbered in the archive.
Not sure how this could be done differently, you need someway of
identifying if a particular source message is the same as a given HTML
Maybe message-id could be used, first you need to strip duplicate
messages containing the same message-id though (eg. if same message
posted multiple times), these are probably unwanted anyway (unless you
want to track the Received lines).
