[Tagging] Proposal: Rename wiki status "Approved" to "Published"

'Endorsed' is just another way of saying approved. We need to remove 
this status that 'some authority' has given their blessing to use the tag.

'Published' is a useful statement which demonstrates community 
discussion and some consensus but nothing else.

Cheers, Chris
