The group may choose to publish intermediate steps, or the decision to 
publish may be down to a project leader or similar - waiting for 
everyone to unedit trusts human nature a bit much IMO... however it 
would automatically publish once the last user has unedited (so the 
single user edit/unedit thing would work pretty transparently).

In that kind of edit scenario the default would be to leave the edit 
active after commit, since you're assuming support for multiple 
revisions per edit.
