make post_submit_meta_box more generic

Currently there isn't a way to modify the meta boxes which set the post status. The function post_submit_meta_box in wp-admin/includes/meta-boxes.php is a closed function with post statuses hard coded. A new post status registered using register_post_status is available to the query object and plugins but cannot be added to the post status select box in the publish meta box.
A lot of the post_submit_meta_box is hardcoded to the default post status types.
Consider the use case where you want posts to only be visible to logged in users. A custom post status selectable by the user in add/edit post could be used which is then added or excluded in the query (filtered by posts_where) depending on whether the user is logged in or not. This way core can handle the non-visible posts the way private or future posts are handled.
