I like the idea, but I'm not sure if we find a fitting term for it.

A few possibilities:
>>> Publish

"Publish on" or "Publish" would imply some sort of action carried out on
that date - but Neos won't press the publish button.

>>> Show

It's not said that it will be shown, because visibility relies on
multiple factors.

See above: even if you check "visible", it's not said that it _will_ be
visible. It should be "potentially visible at all" but, you know, ackward.

It's slightly better, but I'm unbiased.

>>> Date."

Another question: how would we label a feature / switch / check box
which would indeed trigger auto-publishing?
