Not sure whether I fully understand the suggestion.
We can't use "publish" because that is already a different connotation 
in Neos.

Re "Show": do you suggest to rename the "Hide"-checkbox to "Show" and 
have it checked by default? If we really go that path I'd suggest to 
call it "Visible" instead.

BTW: In TYPO3 CMS this is *not* called "hide" any more but "disable" and 
I think that this makes much more sense in fact.

An alternative would be to replace the checkboxes by buttons 
"disable"/"enable" (depending on the current status).
