Post status labels use inconsistent grammar

Description

Our post status labels switch back and forth between being verbs, adjectives, or potentially past-participles:

  • All
  • Mine
  • Published
  • Scheduled
  • Drafts
  • Trash

I'd like to suggest we tidy these up. Maybe something like:

  • All
  • Authored (I don't love this, but you get the idea)
  • Published
  • Scheduled
  • Drafted
  • Trashed

For added context, this issue was identified by a tester of my WP Event Calendar plugin, where "Passed" is a custom status label

"Passed" vs. "Past" makes this issue much more apparent, since it could be grammatically bias in either direction (as a verb like Published & Scheduled, or an adjective like All, Mine, Drafts, and Trash.)
