Assets are published even tho dates are set

Scenario: You have a press release which has an embargo date (i.e. do not publish before) and an associated Acrobat PDF file. You create the text of the press release and set the do not publish date and import the PDF file all ready to go.

Problem: Even though the page will not be published ahead of time, the PDF file will.

I can't find an easy way to achieve this with the current version of CD. It would be really useful if you could set some additional properties on imported files to control their publishing in the final website. Either by using dates or by intended audience.

It would also be great if you could extend this whole idea to "folder" objects. i.e. by setting the publishing date of the folder or it's audiance, sets the articles and objects inside the folder.

Does anyone have a better way to approach this ?
