I'm all for automation. The only problem I see is, that I usually publish
the final site from a dirty working copy. This is because I don't put the
release date into changes.xml until after the release. However I have
realized that for example maven central uses that date the RC was upload to
the staging repo as the release date. We could simply adopt this and use
that date in changes.xml and commit it to the release tag.

I'm sure it would even be possible to let jenkins create site archives as
we're currently doing for some components.

I have no idea about the security implications of this proposal.
