This should be purely a placement-side migration, nah?

For others' reference, Chris and I have been discussing this [1] in the
spec review that was prompted by the above. As of the last episode: a)
we're not convinced this status check is worth having in the first
place; but if it is, b) the algorithm being used currently is pretty
weak, and will soon be actually bogus; and c) there's a suggestion for a
"better" (if not particularly efficient) alternative that uses the API
instead of going directly to the db.
