I can reproduce that, it'll be fixed in the next round.

Streamlining the workflow of authors is a good idea. Those buttons
appeared because I was tired of switching screens every time I wanted
to move something. Sometimes (being a Manager) I would do it on the
Zope level, because there you can move published content. There's an
issue about this, where it explains that it's silly to make Silva more
restrictive than the ZMI, and anything possible on that level should
be possible in Silva.

But I think you're right, the authors are still switching and waiting
for the next screen, and we should try and keep them happy. They're
doing the work.
