The archaic definition of DRAUGHT or DRAUGHT HOUSE is an out-house. The relevancy of this is that the King James Bible still uses these words. Although the KJV of the Bible is not the most popular version it is provable that it is the most accurate version. Not only that, the Bible is still the most popular book in all of history and been translated into more languages than any other book in the world. This fact should even interest Wiktionary. There are few modern dictionaries that define draught as it is used in the Bible. I believe it would be of great service to include the King James Bible use definition since so many other publications are derelict to do so. —This unsigned comment was added by Iamwilliam (talkcontribs) at 22:35, 5 September 2007.

The sense should be mentioned but, unless a publication is intended to be a glossary of the KJV, there's no real reason it should include every obsolete term it used. It's pretty standard for most print dictionaries to abridge things from the OED level of thoroughness. — LlywelynII 04:46, 14 April 2016 (UTC)
