Comment (by westonruter):

 @adamsilverstein in regards to #11049 and not being able to preview a
 change to a page template, will the scope here also include addressing the
 issue where changing the featured image actually makes it go live
 immediately (the opposite problem from page template)? I couldn't find a
 trac ticket about this, but as a user I would expect to be able to set a
 featured image and then click Preview, and then actually _preview_ that
 change without it going live for all. The solution seems as simple as
 changing the featured image behavior to populate a hidden `_thumbnail_id`
 input so that it gets sent along with all of the other postmeta upon
 hitting Save or Preview. (In other words, the
 `wp_ajax_set_post_thumbnail()` should be eliminated.)
