Default Restrict support to the Final Standard

I would encourage you to restrict support to the final standard. Thinking that you might be OK with the various drafts discourages your clients from doing the right thing, which is ensuring that all their responders are upgraded to be compatible with the RELEASED standard. Claiming that you support all the drafts (including ones you will NEVER have seen - unless you were on the task group) is likely to end in tears. We have numerous items that respond to one of the drafts - they just happen to work with a different draft to that used by others such as Artistic Licence, and thus will never be compatible, despite any cleverness of your in-line device. The ONLY sensible way forward and ensure any chance of inter-operability would be to upgrade to versions compatible with the published ANSI standard.
