Hello GBIF team,

I was wondering if there is a way to flag extinct taxa in the GBIF backbone api?

e.g. http://api.gbif.org/v1/species?name=Amplibuteo%20concordatus

is marked as extinct in the CoL (coming originally from PalaeoDB). For using the backbone it would be very useful to distinguish between extinct and recent taxa.
