I'm sure that Romero did indeed wrote more drafts, just based on what i heard from other sources. As for those couple drafts which are still listed as 1st one, well that could mean few different things. Those could be just some minor polish Romero did on dialogue or some other scenes, which is nothing unusual when it comes to the scripts. Not to go into too much screenwriting details here, but sometimes writers don't even list some minor work they did with the script on the cover, specially if it was done in short time between writing the original draft and then "fixing it up". Sometimes it can get confusing if the so-called "new draft" still has the same date, but different format, cover page, etc. To give you an example, i have couple drafts of one script which are listed as same draft but like i said, each is in different format and i swear there's only like couple lines of dialogue which are different between the two. I don't wanna guess did Romero also did some other work on the script between the drafts, like revisions or re-writes, because there's already way too little info about his other RE script drafts. But i'm sure that he did worked on it more than what people think, since i think he left the production few months after writing his 1st draft.
