Inconsistent permissions - drafts

Drafts are one of the best new features in 2.1 for people who don't always complete their post in one sitting. But they're not consistently available here, which doesn't encourage the showcase aspect of this site so well.

(Personally I'd also default autosaving to on, but that's just me)

Some of them are really weird, e.g. the parent board for a language support doesn't, but sub-boards sometimes do, or how Bridges and Integrations does, but Coding Discussion doesn't. I get the Testing Board not enabling it though.

The following boards enable it - all others don't:
Private board 31
Private board 44
Private board 24
Private board 29
Private board 141
Private board 36

Might be a sign of needing to simplify board permissions a touch?

This is most likely just something that wasn't thoroughly checked when drafts were enabled.
We have a few things that I have been meaning to go through, but for technical reasons I have been held back from doing so until recently.
This is NOT to say that I disagree with the notion of maybe needing to simplify things a bit.
