Going to repost the following comment here, as this is where I actually wanted to post it, but I mistakenly posted it in the news thread.
Well, here is a way to look at it. When you walk in to a record store, you are going to have XX amount of albums on display, most of which, you have absolutely no interest in. So what do you do? You walk over to one of the people working in the store and tell them to remove the album from the shelves? No, you walk right by it and just leave it be. That's what people should do in iTunes, just ignore it and it will be out of sight when the album is out in physical formats.
Of course, the above example most likely would not make a difference to most iTunes users, as they probably have no idea what a record store is.
