I think you're partially right. Wool is certainly the way to go.

On clothing: I wear jerseys and bike shorts because they wick and dry very quickly, not because they make me look all bike-y-race-y. I couldn't care less as long as I'm bright and shiny for the motorists and pedestrians (and the ninja bikers flying past who wouldn't be caught Fred with either bright clothing or lights).

On drafting: Very unlikely in my case. If I'm drafting you, I'm probably trying to ask you if you happen to be carrying a defibrillator.
