I'd put it in front of the plugin name.

However, given the separation of plugins in 2.6 and 2.7-bleeding, I'd
prefer to simply create a new section at the top of the page: "Plugins
that need attention."

Move plugins that need updates, plugins not checked, plugins found to
use deprecated functions, etc, all up there.
