There are a few possible options:
1. Create a new data field for this. This will be the most complex option but the most elegant one.
2. Use Product type for the additional field. You need to customize the code the show the field in the browse page and flypage. Also you will need to add the product type to all new products.
3. Use a data field that is not in use to store the barcode data. One possible field is product_weight_uom. You just need to change the label for the field in the language file.
