In an Edit Summary, you wrote, "Martin, might this be a sneakier/prettier way of categorising Draft pages? note the {{draft}} template contains its own Category:Drafts flag :-)".

I have avoided using the template {{draft}} in OggPCM (and in Channel mapping examples) because it is not really a draft in that it is ready for implementation. It is just that nobody can work up sufficient enthusiasm to actually implement it, and the wording in the template would discourage this. I have included Category:Drafts because, until it is implemented, it is not complete either. It is neither fish nor fowl. Martin Leese (talk) 14:23, 20 August 2015 (PDT)
I see, that makes a lot of sense. I'm wondering if the {draft} wording could do with a "call to arms" for willing volunteers, since in its current state it's very disheartening of any work being done on an article? (talk) 2015-08-21 09:30 BST
Reviewing the pages which contain the template {{draft}}, they are all as dead as the dodo. I feel a "call to arms" would be futile. Also, on reflection, OggPCM and Channel mapping examples are equally dead. I will add {{draft}} to these, plus three others. This will make Category:Drafts and {{draft}} equivalent.
