Right, this is part of my concern also.

Further, PUBLISH, as I understand it, is something of a one-time or at
least reasonably rarely done operation.  This is quite different from a
SELECT privilege which is used on every query against the table and
which may be GRANT'd to user X today and user Y tomorrow and perhaps
REVOKE'd from user X the next day.

What happens when the PUBLISH right is REVOKE'd from the user who did
the PUBLISH in the first place, for example..?
