See my other reply to this thread.

Backup of form contest is one thing and I'm already using user agents
that allow this at least via extensions. However, submitting the draft
to the server instead allows additional application specific processing
/ mutation for the form when user later returns to it. For static pages,
there's a less need for features like this.

Also note that currently rel="next" is not allowed on input type=submit,
unless I've understood incorrectly.
