Yup, Editor's Drafts in general count for nothing. They're
scrapbook works in progress, and might vanish, burst into
flames, etc etc.

W3C Process doc covers all of those except "editor's WD" which
is not a formalised concept. We are however discussing a 
possible page on w3.org which informally describes the 
idea of an editor's draft, giving guidance re stylesheet etc
and being something that editor's drafts could link to, 
so that readers of those docs would know what they'd encountered.
I doubt there'll be something ready before SKOS goes to real WD
but I think it's likely we'll have something eventually...
