I believe this would count as "all prima". The technique, as you correctly describe, involves painting wet in wet.
Sure, it is most often in one sitting, but it doesn't have to be.
If it is wet-in-wet, it is alla-prima, not layered painting, that is my understanding.

As far as "archival qualities" go - sure, use good technique and common sense.
But the future is hard to control, so lets not worry needlessly

Re: Few technical questions (solvents and paint)

@Jeffro Jones - that's really helpful, I just wanted to make sure, if I unerstand alla prima correctly. Yo have mentioned earlier, taht you have used M. Graham paints. What was their consistency. I like having visible unblended brushstrokes and sometimes paint in impasto manner. Will they be also suitable for such applications?

I recollect a very smooth buttery consistency, that was quite uniform across the range.
Some brands, thinking of Langridge, vary quite a bit from tube to tube.
That's not a criticism, it is what it is.
Visible unblended brushstrokes are no problem, in fact they are a pleasure as the paint glides off the brush so smoothly.
Here is a detail of a study I did with the Graham paints, showing brushstrokes:





Regarding impasto: I would think the paint is not stiff enough, out of the tube, but I always use a little impasto medium,
no matter what brand I am using, to bulk up the paint for impasto or painting-knife effects.
Hope this helps
