While the proposal of #2279 would probably solve the case of heaviness of the publication workflow for simple cases, there is an alternative that could be reached earlier.

We should provide a new workflow for in-place creation and publication in sections : something similar to the features of most simpler CMSes.

Sample use-case: users needing to publish short news items don't need the workspaces version. These aren't long-lived documents, or, rather, documents that need to be revisable a long time after the primary publications. Therefore, the current default workflow is a pure loss of time in that case. If a simpler workflow was shipping with CPS, together with the standard one, the administrator could simply use local workflow associations in some sections, e.g, a "News" section or even decide that all News Item documents should follow the simpler workflow.
