When logged in as an administrator, it is possible to publish an item even when
there is no workflow task of type 'Deploy' active.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. log in as administrator
2. Create a new item
3. Ensure workflow is applied & the 'Authoring' task is active
4. Go to the publishing tab

This is not currently the case. I think was fixed a while back.
