It is not clear what you are trying to do.
If you are withdrawing a video, then the record doesn't display, the item
is gone, right?
If you are merely wanting to bring somebody's attention to the fact that an
is dated, but is still available in a publisher's/distributors/producers
I don't think that the online catalog is the place for that information.
Not even in 590, local notes.

The item is on your shelf and available because it has merit, or you
withdraw it,
because it has passed its shelf life. Putting a note in a catalogue record
likely confuse a borrower more than it will help them as you would have to
go back and change that note if the producer/distributor removed the item.
And are you willing to constantly keep verifying this information?

If you are, then you have more time than many of us.
