Publishing documents in categories
The "category" dropdown in the publication form contains all the categories, not only the ones where the user has add-rights (wich is confusing)

actually I don't think it is that dangerous as you can't actually publish in the categories. that bug was already fixed: you get a "you are not allowed to publish here" message. But if there are a lot of categories and you can only publish in one it might be a pretty big pita to try the different categories and get that message a few times.

Sounds like "someone" wanted to economize on rights checks then. If I were the end-user I would not only find it confusing, but excessively annoying as well.
Additionaly if after checking rights and whatnot only one category remains as a possibility, I think the selection box shouldn't be shown (already the case, sometimes) but there should be an indication of where the object is being published. (as that would not necessarily be in the root of the tool)
