Disable or shrink Archive for one feature class in a feature dataset

  I have a versioned Feature dataset with archiving enabled.  I have one feature class in this feature dataset for which I would like to either disable archiving or if that is not possible, I would like to shrink/delete features in the archive for this feature class.  Is this possible?

Background:  The feature class needs to be in the archived feature dataset (participates in topology), so I can't just pull it out.  The feature class periodically has all features deleted and updated features appended by an automated process.  This is making the _H table grow to a very large size.
Thanks in advance,
