I cannot see how this method could have any effect on archival qualities. It simply dissolves the halide as any other fixer. The rest depends on the washing. The result of adding fixer to developer is to form an alkaline fixer, usually. If an alkaline concentrate such as TF4 is used, the result will certainly be an alkaline fixer. Aren't these supposed to be more easily washed out?
