Added dated tag to sense 2.
I think this is better for the arch sense.

  Comments:
i'm not sure, but i think (arch) have to be slightly older than that.  e.g., meikyo 
has sense 2 as 〔古い言い方で〕, which i take to mean that this is still the kind 
of thing that older people say, and therefore not really an "archaism".  i 
usually don't mark them archaic unless they've fallen into disuse

sense 3 needs to be more nounish
