I believe that ongoing access to drafts is essential for another reason.
That is to provide (low cost) proof of prior art.
For example, there are concepts embedded in 802.9 drafts and standards that are relevant to the current market.
Given that much of the stuff in (especially) old standards never showed up at the patent office
and that patent searches don't seem to be all that effective, we need to have ready access to that material to avoid and/or combat patents being filed or prosecuted against our work.
The same is true for presentation archives
