Sharing documents with non-Alpha users

I have a document that has the Drawings Alpha enabled, which I'd like to share with other users. Is this okay to do, or will it break/expose something that shouldn't be?

    Just to clarify - I want to share the model, not the drawings. I don't care if they can't see/modify the drawings, I just don't want to get in trouble!

    @julian_leland Actually you won't be able to share the document at all with a user that doesn't have Alpha Drawing capability. I certainly hope for alpha to progress into beta sooner rather than later for this reason. I actually feel that it may be developed enough for beta, sure were missing a lot of functionality but were missing functionality in the modeling side also.

    @julian_leland - Please contact @lougallo and we can discuss options to help you out.  In general, we're hoping to transition from drawings alpha to public beta asap.
