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

Here again comes the spirit of "approved", i.e. voted-on tags :-(

If one wants to avoid conflicts, one will always use different tags than
tags that are already in use. A proposal should be the documentation of new
tags that are actually used(!).

A proposal should not be a drawing board idea that will only be used after
some vote, just to find out five minutes later that it can't handle some
common cases.
