Add meta cap for publish_post

While throughout the core codebase meta_caps for read_post, edit_post, and delete_post are used, there isn't a meta_cap for publish_post. For completeness, there should also be a meta_cap for create_post. Having more granular capabilities is important for developers that are trying to use WordPress for larger, more complex installations or as more of an application development framework.

There isn't edit_post, et all, but there is edit_posts. There is also publish_posts. Was this ticket fixed and not closed?
