It was a deliberate design decision by the developer at the time to include 'Cancelled', but make 'On Hiatus'=>'In-Progress'.
Given that 'Cancelled' already breaks the Completed/In-Progress two state paradigm, I don't have a problem including 'On Hiatus', too. Plus, replace_metadata now makes it easy for users who disagree to hide it again.
Give this test version a try, see what you think.
UPDATE Nov 12: Test version superseded, see later posts.
