I've always found the draft label confusing and as a newbie, suggesting 
that content is not yet active but will become so at some time.  But it 
seems from this thread it means "descriptive" or "advice" or 
"non-normative" in W3C-standards-speak.  To me, any non-draft documents 
is documenting current state and subject to change.
