I don't think passing information about Distributions to be updated in POST publications/ would be not
appropriate. The auto_updated attribute is intended for convenience for non-manual promotion use cases.  If
the auto_update concept was discarded, the user should make a 2nd API call to distributions/ to update the
desired distribution(s).
