One argument to mark old/invalid links differently somehow is
that the wayback machine at archive.org may still have them.

But when the domain has been transferred to a 3rd party, it is
possibly harmful.

Another option might be to grab any archive.org content and
put it into a Documentation/archived/outdated directory or
the like.

For instance:

https://web.archive.org/web/20090423133742/http://www.handhelds.org/projects/h1940.html

Then gain, this might as well be prehistoric content.
