I usually send my drafts as low-res pdfs, but that's
usually either because they're Frame or Quark files
going to reviewers who can't read them or Word files
large enough to choke their email. I haven't had any
problems with people demanding editable drafts or
absconding with the work; they reason they brought me
onboard in the first place is usually because they
want someone else to do it.

I am contracted to deliver a draft, allow the customer 10 days to respond

Nothing in the contract calls for me to deliver editable content, so
delivering it in a non-editable format would seem to me to show good
business sense, not bad faith or pre-emptive action.
