If I've learnt anything from watching the list over the years, it's that
somebody will have a need to replace existing drawers, so be prepared
for that :-)

That said, I can't think of any reason why adding to existing drawers,
instead of replacing them, would lead to problems. So I'm inclined to
agree with you. One question that might arise: are multiple
#+DRAWERS lines legal? and if so, what do they do?

I'll try to take the patch for a spin but I'm not sure when I'll be able
to do it.
