It doesn't have to be a problem. If it already fits in office we can just 
include it. We can still have it in the publishing meta regardless. This 
is what the publishing menu/meta was actually originally imagined to hold. 
The only thing that has changed is that publishing as a word has been 
found to be less than specific. However the idea of including Literature 
creating tools is not out of line and with a push to use existing 
Categories, Office is fine. I am sure many people will look there second 
if not first.
