I don't consider End Users Publishing and Publishing End Users the same
The "Publish" option would simply enable the installed set of modules to
be 'transformed' into the hypothetical install source format, if we ever
decide we need a different install source format.
For example, if I install KJV, AraSVD, MHC, StrongsRealGreek,
StrongsRealHebrew, Robinsons, and TR on my device, and decide to share
my books with someone else, I would have to first press a "Publish"
button or some such to generate the format necessary (if a different
format ever becomes necessary) for another instance of a SWORD
application to install from my books.
I believe your idea was for allowing users to publish their authored
content to a publicly recognized location for discovery by other users.
I don't think I ever voiced disapproval to that idea. I just didn't
want to host (police) their content :)
