What about drafts for nodes not yet created?  That is, can I create a
draft when creating a node, or just when editing?

You make it sound like if I've made a draft of changes to a node, then
you start editing the node and save your own draft, your draft
overwrites mine.  Is that what you mean?  Or are drafts per-node

It might be better to work with the form api and add a mechanism to save
the state of any form, not just the node edit form.  That way any user
(with sufficient privileges) could save their work in progress on any
form in drupal.  Later they could pull up the form again, continue
working and submit (or save another draft).
