Draft mode is a design idea. It affects drafts and revisions, such as the articles for creation at english wikipedia, drafts namespace at english wikipedia, code hosted on a wiki, and also whatever else you may find it applicable to. The idea includes a set of new features.

It can be an article, a page with code such as your own script page, or a code snippet object inside of an article.
