It would be awesome to be able to have the ability to set an option to have products to be "Stopped and Removed" once product status become Out Of Stock. This option can also be set to allow a Custom Attribute to set the option so it can then be set on a per product bases.
The reason for this is I have products in stock that become Discontinued. Once products become discontinued we set out backorders option to Not Allow Backorders because the product is no longer available from our supplier. What we would like to do is have this listing Stopped and Removed from the listing automatically once the stock qty of the item hits 0. This way when products become discontinued I can then use Magento Data Profiles to update my custom attribute for this setting for discontinued products and everything will happen automatically.
