This is kind of an obscure behaviour, but it is possible to give a user group the ability to publish but deny them the ability to edit. They then are unable to get to the publish functionality due to the lack of the edit button.

This brings to mind a feature I've had in mind for a while now which is to simplify the publishing process with a button in the bar instead of having it in the admin section. Just food for future thought.

+1 for adding a "publish" button to the "action" bar.

Just noticing this ticket because of Jesus updating it - it's actually possible that this will be resolved in the 2.3 release, since the publication update status has now been moved out of the edit template? Worth testing.
