See It's just a base URL + message-id of the
message. (In my MUA, I can just hit a few keys and get the URL stashed
to the clipboard.)

The message-id based URL lets people find the message using their MUA
instead of having to go to some horrendous web site. But it still lets
people who prefer web sites use them.

Moreover, if an archive goes down, this makes it possible to still find
the message.
