Special Pages should show each CPT's Archive

I have a CPT that auto-creates a template in the Drag and Drop settings but I don't see its Archive in Special Pages.

I created the CPT via WPMU DEV's CustomPress plugin. I'm sure it'd be the same result via any other plugin or just coding it manually.

The CPT's Archive should show up in Special Pages because if I add FitText or any other section via drag-and-drop, how else can I then set the settings for the CPT's archive page or something (i.e. what goes INTO the section that I was able to drag-and-drop)?

screenshots of what I'm asking: http://screencast.com/t/Eie8jK5Iv & http://screencast.com/t/ViKghSzi5osw

My best guess was that the single Archive Page settings apply to all the post, page, CPT archives, but if that's the case, why do some of the sections show up inactive ( http://screencast.com/t/K6jfEn887 , e.g. FitText) if it's active on one of the several possible Archive pages (e.g. Tours Archive)?

Ok, so I tested the assumption above and it's not true... here's a short video (longest time is loading time, sorry) that shows that Archive Pages special page doesn't apply to the CPT's archive page: http://screencast.com/t/Sq8my81JQpm8

Thank you very much.

I appreciate you submitting the bug report for me. Is it just that -- can't use Archive pages for CPTs at this time? I don't understand why it would show up in Drag and Drop but not in Special Pages.

Thank you.

Well as a band aid you can use the Site Defaults for the time being.
