Ah- good thought,

Wikipedia says it went nowhere (am I correct here posting this?):

"The draft, which was circulated to 10 divisions of the Department of  
Justice,[18] proposed to make further extensive modifications to

Department of Justice claimed that it was only a draft and contained  
no further proposals.[20]"
