Default Unreleased / cancelled albums

I'd like to get some comments on inclusion of official albums that had scheduled release dates, but were cancelled (or delayed and then released under a different catalog number).

For example, KICA-1411~4 were reserved numbers for the reprints of Leaf Vocal Collection Vol. 1~4, which were never released on the scheduled date of July 26 2006 (they were all eventually released as Aquaplus Vocal Collections, KICA-1421~4, a month later). Considering that some sites still catalog these albums, I feel that we should do likewise, except with a notice replacing the usual information sheet stating that these albums are unreleased. This can be set using an additional checkbox underneath the release date fields.

What do you think?

I'm wondering if we should just have a set of alternate cat numbers for these albums. It may also help in the case of ABCD-0123 vs. ABCD-123; though that could probably be solved through programming logic.

That wouldn't work for cancelled albums, though. Plus "alternate" cat. numbers would be kind of inaccurate.

In that case, what you had in mind sounds reasonable to me.

I think they should be included. One thing we could do is indicate "Cancelled" in the catalog number, like:

KICA-1411 (Cancelled)

That'll help provide way to distinguish the canceled albums from the noncancelled, for the case where they share the same number.
