You are right. I just wanted to counter your proposal of a versioned ‘-draft-’ prefix. Personally I’m fine with vendor prefixes for internal and experimental use and a common ‘-draft-’ prefix during the testing and revising phase.

In an earlier mail I suggested that above prefixes would be used for comparison tests and perhaps by intranet developers. Only select ones would be used then.
