I'm also in the 'publish+configure' camp, and agree to the points
mentioned earlier about atomicity, burden of the client, ...

As for the approach sounding 'unclean': IMO, when a client publishes
information, it makes a lot more sense that the client specifies for
each published item how it should be published, than that it should
think about the low-level details of published items, i.e. that
information is published to nodes, think about how the node it
publishes an item to is configured etc. Although you are moving the
'how' of the publishing to the item itself from the client
perspective, it will still boil down to making a node public or
private, but it sounds cleaner to think about and to program.
