According to this pretty graph on microsoft.com/office/preview, Publisher 2007 will be in the Small Business, Professional, Professional Plus, and Enterprise suites of Microsoft Office 2007. As someone working on Publisher, I'm really glad that all of the higher-end business and professional suites will include Publisher.
I think Publisher is a great value for Home and Student use also, but I'm guessing folks who want Publisher will may consider buying Small Business or Professional instead of Home and Student.
Also, for folks who are so excited about Publisher that they're starting to save now, the marketing folks have posted estimated retail pricing.
The branding for Office "12" was announced last week (while I was on vacation) and the company is going with the date schema of "Microsoft Office 2007." I'm personally glad that we're using a date again since I remember attending a trade show in 2003 and trying to understand from customers who had "XP" if they have Windows XP + Office XP or Windows XP + some other version of Office; or possibly even some other version of Windows + Office XP.
