Invalid Draft formats should allow unreleased Pokémon

Some drafts may choose to allow players to draft Pokémon that are in the data of Scarlet/Violet but not yet available (like Cinderace). The draft formats should allow this. The NatDex formats aren't correct here, since they also include things like moves. NatDex formats also have Hisuian Pokémon listed as illegal, though they do pass validation.

I'm aware of that, but the draft formats were added very recently and aren't mentioned on the policy page, so I wasn't sure where else to ask. Are the draft formats considered to be Smogon OMs? They're definitely not any of the other categories, and they're not under the OM categories in the team builder.
You'd want to bring it up in the Draft Leagues section.
