Actually you could add a "Draft" status. On the team board, do not include this status on any of the columns and it will not appear. A publish transition could move the issue to one of the visible status. Of course you will need to create a separate board that does show this status so you can get to those issues.
In our Kanban environment we often have a Planning Board for a couple of transitions before an issue is in the To Do status which is the beginning column for our engineers/team boards.
