I considered this but it runs up against the issue of the needlessly
autoincremented post ID. Plenty of people rally against this effect
whenever it occurs.

Gmail's draft system is very nice but to do the same in WP would be to
insert a row in wp_posts every time, not something I would do without
user initiative.
