Share as document archive

Hi,
  Can alfresco share be used as a document archival system.

The use case is as follows
1. document/content is stored in share as fragments of HTML to be aggregated at runtime
2. At the time the end user uses it a document (such as an "reciept") is generated by aggregating fragments from WCM and search/replacing values of parameters from a form (say purchase form and credit card auth)
3. Once this document is generated that is specific to the date, customer identifier etc.. We want to store this generated document in an archive
4. This archived document will be retrieved later by demand from the customer or another party.

This is sort of an document archival system that I see. Is this one of alfresco's known use cases/bestpractices? or is alfresco not built for this type of use (although alfresco can do it)?

Thanks
-Anthony
