While we're at it, these two sentences are contradictory.
"Internet-Drafts are a specific thing" but "some Internet-Drafts may

areas and working groups, how about modifying this to say
The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) distributes its working
documents as Internet-Drafts. Note that other groups may also
distribute working documents as Internet-Drafts.
I asked for feedback on the wgchairs list before posting here, and the

I hence opted for changing the minimum number of words compared to the
current boilerplate. The only reason I removed the "areas & working
groups" bit was that I believe it's fully redundant and otherwise we'd
need an extra line.
As Scott Lawrence points out this isn't completely true. How about:
Current Internet-Drafts are available at
See my other email. I think http://datatracker.ietf.org/drafts/
current/ is best.
