"No even then. The recommended way to do a working patch is using drafts:"

I disagree with that.. quoting yourself from a wiki page does not make a
'recommended' way.
Draft are a pain in the but... and when you wrote that it was not even possible
to view other's draft for most people
So the feature exist.. but is by no mean 'recommended'.

"there is little harm done, when the change is abandoned under the conditions
above. Reviving a abandoned change is trivial and the autoabandon is actually a
helpful reminder -- better than letting them stay in limbo for months."

Patch are presented typically from the newsest modified to the oldest modified.
furthermore reviewed -2 patch are visually easy to detect
so ... such patch do not actually interfere with normal reviewer works
I do not see the ground to put the burden of 'little harm' to fellow committers
by messing with their work just to make the main page 'look good'

I'm not arguing against the clean-up of drive by patch not being worked upon..
but a patch uploaded by a committer, explicitly marked -2 by him should be left
