It would be nice to have the option to automise the export process more further.
For example: You are exporting a folder with images you have been rated with 0, 1 or 2 stars. In this case it would be very good to create an own export preset where I can say: Form all choosen pictures export the 0 stars own with export preset 1, the 1 and more stars own with export preset 2 and the 2 stars own with export preset 3.

That's easy to do now with publish services - you'll have to set up a separate service for each "export preset", but then you can publish based on a smart collection.

This idea came to my mind when I read this article:

Thats why I thougth, maybe it's a good idea to do this within on step instead of four.
But of course the four step way isn't that much slower.

Sorry - I didn't read the whole article, but realize: once setup, it's just "one click" to publish. OK, multiple clicks if you don't use auto-publish feature of Publish Service Assistant. If you want to use regular export instead of publish services, you can do 1-click multi-exporting using Export Manager, which works just as well I guess, except you have to keep track of what to export. If you use publish services, Lr keeps track of what to export (publish).
