Infopath Collaboration

Looking for suggestions:  

We are developing InfoPath form templates and publishing them to Sharepoint.  We're also kicking around the idea of creating a document library to store the XSN forms in so that users (who may not be the original form template author) can retreive them and make modifications and re-publish the form.  

Does anyone have an elegant solution for this?  I know that there are some caveats with regard to 'domain permission'-ing, etc, so I'm looking to see if anyone has already blazed this trail.

The document library will only provide a common file store with version control at this time.

there is not automation built in the form/document library to perform the administrative publish .

But there is nothing stopping your from writing a webpart or an event receiver on the library to publish that particular forms

it will be very complex but doable.

best of luck.

Thank you for your help.  I am grading this as a 'B', not as a slight, but only because there was no 'solution' attached, more of a theory.  Thanks again
