Comment (by westonruter):

 @dlh I think your first approach is ideal. It would give the maximum
 flexibility for plugins to filter `map_meta_cap` to manage whether a user
 can publish a specific post that has been created, or if the post hasn't
 been created yet to publish posts of that type generally. Right?

 Another question: I see `capabilities` is now mapping meta caps to
 `edit_theme_options`. Just to confirm that is desired as opposed to
 introducing new primitives like `edit_customize_changeset` which are then
 added to the administrator? I suppose in that case it lies in the realm of
 plugins to supply a different primitive capability if they're wanting, as
 in the case of Customize Snapshots, to optionally restrict publishing
 changesets for specific roles?
