Add an "archive" feature instead of draft/delete/private
I run a news site that has preview stories of events, and of course I want those previews to disappear off the homepage as soon as the events have happened. (I don't want to send people to events that are in the past, or have them click on a story only to find they're an hour or a day or a week late.)
But I don't want the stories to disappear from my site entirely — I want them to be searchable in my archives, and I don't want people linking to these stories to have dead links because I've sent my stories to draft or private status, or deleted them.
Could you add a function that just sends an expired story to the archive for that category?
Sorry if this already exists; it's possible it does and I just couldn't figure out how to do it. But it's the feature I've been waiting for on WordPress since 2009.

+1. Looking for "front page" for non-expired but still searchable for "expired"
