There have been a number of Meta posts confused as to
Why can't I migrate this particular question? There's no feedback indicating why you don't get the "belongs on" menu when selecting the option, so I'm not surprised:
A section should pop-out below the Off Topic block explaining why you can only vote off topic, not to migrate, when the 60 day limit has been reached for a post. This should alleviate a lot of the confusion, and you could toss in a link to the official meta post about the feature change to explain the reasoning too.

Starting with the next build the "off topic" close reason will have "(too old to migrate)" after it if that is in fact the case.

This would be a good addition. There are many complexities to the migration system that are not at all intuitive or obvious to most users.
Doing this should improve the signal to noise ratio on Meta, and possibly on other sites as well.
