I've actually thought about such a thing before, something like what Google does, but for one I'm not entirely pleased with the current implementation of drafts, and two I'm not sure how much of a storage-space concern this would create. Someone could open 2000 posting screens and put in a bunch of random text . I guess a max drafts-per-user and a maximum age for drafts, etc.

In any case, that is not what this RFC is for, I suppose. I'm marking this as rejected.
