As far as I understand it, the goal of the display in the OPAC is to
prevent patrons from looking for items on the shelf which are not
available because they are damaged. This is in contrast to focusing on
preventing the user from checking out something which is damaged.

I agree that it would be nice to have more fine-grained control over
both aspects of it.
