My concern with making it optional is that most people won't. The

admit that despite my push for making this the requirement, I myself
would--if given the option--be unlikely to open my draft up. I'd still
publish it on my site or something, probably, but why would I take a
risk when others will not.
I think it's a cultural question. The same goes for software: Not
every software is written well and of high quality. It may work but
for some pieces if you look at the sources...
Still today in Free Software there is a culture of publishing
everything - good or bad. That culture needs encouraging. For Free
Software it's mandatory. And people with bad software also risk their
next job - still it's published. Though there are certainly
differences may be we can learn from this example.
