I'm worried about having such restriction on editor's drafts. A large
number of publication we're receiving has some errors (in general,
markup and/or broken links). I would bet that most of the editors'
drafts are broken in some fashion, and that's ok imho. In other words, I
would favor a more relax approach for editors' draft than for formal
publications.

Yes, but that's not going to happen in the short term. We made progress
on automation but those are only visible to the webmaster for the
moment. In addition, the webmaster is still facing a lot of exceptions
that he has to deal with manually (shortnames changes for example).
