Is this new behavior? My original question was 'Is this was
#publish-options does?' if not how else is #publish-options supposed
to behave?

IMHO this is the only logical behavior of the already existing
#publish-options (that's not implemented anywhere?) Otherwise I don't
think #publish-options servers any purpose at all. I can't request a
list of available publish-options from the server. And even if I could
if the behavior is not standardized am I supposed to display the form
data to the user?
