Warning for EOL Products in LiveUpdate Administrator

At present it is possible to configure LiveUpdate Administrator 2.x to download and distribute content for many Symantec products.  Some of these products have reached their "End of Life." They are no longer supported and new materials are never created for them. 

This can lead to a waste of resources: LUA 2.x will check daily (or perhaps more often) for new updates to (for example) Symantec AntiVirus 8 or SAV 9, though there will be no new product updates or definitions for these old, retired versions.  

It would be useful if LUA could warn the administrators if they are (perhaps accidentally, or perhaps from lack of information) configuring their server for an EOL product.
