I often want to be able to publish an entire hierarchy of collections to my HDD, but there is no way to do so currently. This is a natural thing to allow in Publish collections.

Why should Collections and Publish Collections remain as separate panels? Instead each Collection Set should have a Publish settings option (displayed as an icon on the Collection). IOW, fix the underlying awkwardness.

If that's too radical - drag and drop from Collections to Publish.

I agree with John, fix the problem - don't create a new one.

I totally agree, but I thought that was pretty radical and had planned to submit it as a separate suggestion to ensure both options were captured. I just ran out of steam last night.

When you talk about "entire hierarchy" are you wanting the folders to automatically be created and photos placed in them as you have them organized in the collection sets? If so, I definitely want that feature!

Yep.
