Consider or not consider the article date published

Shouldn't be the article date published considered in the article display and TOC? Because, I could schedule an article to a published issue but define a future article published date. Or, maybe, this doesn't actually matter for display? Or, maybe, I shouldn't be able to define a future date?
This one is a little tricky. Basically, the publication date you can set for an article is only currently used for article metadata -- it doesn't have any impact on how or when the article itself is published. If an article is scheduled against an issue, and that issue is published, then the article itself is published. I agree that this publication date should possibly factor into whether the article itself is published, but we're currently overhauling how this entire system is going to work for OJS 3.0 as far as I can remember; so I'm going to close this until then. If you do think this should be reviewed for 2.4.3+, please feel free to reopen, and to reassign to 2.4.3. We can take a closer look then!
