Similar to the eventStatus property for type Event, I propose adding a similar property to CreativeWork, perhaps named creativeWorkStatus, or simply status.

This property would have values expected to be of a new type, CreativeWorkStatusType, which would be "an enumeration type whose instances represent several states that a CreativeWork may be in." Perhaps the enumeration members of this type might include values such as Draft, Unstable, InProgress, OnHold, Complete, Finalized, Published, Stable, Deprecated, Obsolete, and so on.

Although the current properties dateCreated, dateModified, and datePublished describe useful information about the date on which a creative work's status had changed, I do not believe they richly describe its status in the manner proposed above.

Hello, are building a content API fully based on strict conformance with as few propriety extensions as possible (none so far) . This extension would be useful because we have draft content in our graph for preview by journalists and tests with tools like AMP. It strikes me search engines and other semantic query engines could be usefully aware of this status to explicitly avoid crawling "not published" content.

The property creativeWorkStatus makes a lot of sense, we will use this for describing the status of published open data sets in Switzerland, which often start as drafts and only over time get "stable".
