Yes, I’ll get these sent out as soon as I reasonably can.

On this, and ignoring that it may not become relevant here - the point of moving to Draft is that the specification is believed to be stable, and that it’s unlikely there will be further significant (or, at least, backwards-incompatible) changes - it is possible  to make such changes to a Draft XEP (with the proviso that they must ‘be avoided if at all possible’), but XEPs shouldn’t go to Draft with the anticipation that it’ll happen. So, for the most part, it’s not generally appropriate to push something to Draft in such a situation.
