Subject: "Living" vs. "Private"

On several occasions, someone has written to me because a relative of theirs
was listed as "Living" in a privatized Web site, and the person was actually
no longer living. Typically, the person in question might have died in the
last two or three years. It's hard to identify all such deaths, especially
for distantly related collateral lines.

There seems to be some objection to having a deceased person listed as
"Living". So as a suggestion for a future release, would it be possible to
have an option where the word "Private" is used rather than "Living"?
"Living" could still be the default, but it would be nice to have an option.
