Any drafts were available to all participants in the ITU-T, on exactly the same terms as drafts of other Recommendations. As an example, the draft coming out of the October, 2011 meeting can be seen at http://www.itu.int/md/T09-SG13-111010-TD-WP4-0201/en. (I have access delegated by a vendor to whom I have been consulting, by virtue of their membership in the ITU-T.)

Correct? All ITU Drafts and Recommendations are developed behind closed doors.

(If something is developed in a process which is not open to non-members, then, it is by definition developed behind closed doors. Why is this difficult to understand?)

You say that as if we're supposed to think it is a good thing. To many of us, it is one of the many reasons we're not so thrilled by ITUs sudden interest in exercising greater authority over internet operations.
