my experience is that students are quite good at implementing problems. 
However, it is often difficult to them to provide suitable metadata.

Moreover, in the full implementing-publishing process I envisage I want 
the RESPONSIBLE author (i.e. not co-author) to "sign" that the job is 
done. So a co-author (without publishing rights) would implement the 
problem, the responsible author will do a quality check (has the ability 
to do a quality check, depending on his time budget ...) and release the 
problem into public.

Based on Gerd's earlier remark ("What  do others think?") I am posting 
this to lon-capa-users as well.
