The problem with passsing folks you're drafting off of is that your effort is level is reduced until you exit the draft. At that point even passing those who are slightly slower than you will seem like a lot of effort. What I did at CdA a few weeks ago was to swim my pace and effort (which was for a relaxed swim) and start converging towards a draft possibility. If I was easily catching them I'd only slip behind them briefly then continue on. until i found someone who took effort to catch up to.

Not exactly what you were after but it is what I did.
