""I have been told of some researchers who are getting lots of requests for, among other things, all drafts of scientific papers prior to their publication in journals, with annotations, explaining why changes were made between successive versions."

LOL, I have none!

""I don't actually know the answer but I think we have a problem here."

The idea behind FOI legislation has been completely twisted. Definitely, we have a problem; either it gets fixed or sooner or later the law will be dropped because of these misuses.
