When voting, just use the comment field to describe in greater detail
why you voted -1 or -2 on your own change. That should serve the
purpose just fine.

The "WIP" prefix in the commit message's first line is not special to
gerrit, so you can replace it with what ever seems appropriate to
you. Although "fixme" sounds confusing to me, you can of course prefix
by "fixme", if you choose to.

I doubt that going back to draft state would get love from
upstream. Generally, upstream does not like the current state of
drafts too much, as they raise complexity a lot. Going back and forth
between draft states, would raise the complexity way further.

Also, drafts come with different visibility. Allowing to go back and
forth between draft state strikes me as confusing for users:
“Hey where is that draft gone? It was there a minute ago”

If you intend to fix it soon, the “WIP” prefix typically works fine.

If you do not intend to fix it, just abandon the change. That makes
the change disappear from most of the change lists. Star the change,
so you can find it easier afterwards.

Vote CR-2. That hides the submit button for people.
