Hrm. I guess I should have dig a little deeper first.

The main thing that stuck out at me was that the get_post_statuses() and 
get_page_statuses() functions have hard-coded lists. I had assumed that 
we used those in the admin when presenting the dropdowns to set post 
status, and possibly in other places. But now that I look, the only 
place we use those functions is in xmlrpc.php.

So, my bad. Much ado about nothing. I blame it on sleep deprivation. 

Though, those functions might need to be refactored to support custom 
post statuses if any XML-RPC clients are using them.
