I don't think (and checking XEP-0001 tends to confirm) that any 
implementation is needed to reach the draft state, I've already been 
surprised to see some XEP reaching this state with nearly no 
implementation in the wild.

But this detail put aside, it's probably a good move, I've seen a couple 
of time people doing criticism on XMPP because "many XEPs are in Draft 
state", and indeed when you're not aware of the workflow, it seems like 
nearly nothing is usable (that's still true with many XEPs used widely 
which are in Experimental or Deferred state, but that's an other story).

Thanks for taking care of this.
