If you create the sample Publicon document using the "S" button on the
LaTeX_Article (rather than the Default) palette then you get a \maketitle
when you Save As LaTeX.

I couldn't find a way of opening the palette directly. I had to do the
following:
    1. File | New | LaTeX Article. This creates a dummy document which you
can discard straight away, and also opens the LaTeX_Article palette.
    2. Now create the sample Publicon document using the "S" button on the
LaTeX_Article palette. This deals with \maketitle correctly.

I have found that to get correct LaTeX behaviour the Publicon document has
to have one of the LaTeX styles and have the correct document structure
(created automatically using the "S" button, as above). The translation that
occurs when you Save As LaTeX is determined by what is in the style sheet. I
have drilled down into the LaTeX_Article style sheet to find the following
interesting entry for the MainmatterGroup style:

  ConversionRules:>{"TeX" -> {"\n\\maketitle",
    NoOutput[ ], ""}, "HTML" -> {"",
    NoOutput[ ], ""}},

So now we know where \maketitle comes from! I presume one can hack the style
sheet (preferably a copy thereof) to control the Save As LaTeX in various
devious ways.
