The problem I see with that approach is that with Drafts, we probably
want to *discourage* users who are casually browsing the Wiki from
gleaning incorrect guidance.  If they can read a table full of all the
docs at once, many of them will ignore admonitions and read draft docs
with an unwarranted level of confidence.  I think any table of Drafts
should be separated from the table of "finished" documentation.
