Our company all though huge is in a bit of disarray when it comes to leadership in practices and standards. We are in the process of modifying our title blocks again for increased automation with EPDM.  The title block areas reserved for the original "drawn by" and "checked" are trying to be changed by a department that knows nothing about drafting practices and standards.  As far as I know those two areas are like a sacred cow to most people I have ever talked to and all engineers working with me. Is there a specific ASME standard, perhaps one of the Y14 series, that states those fields are for use the originating drafter and checker?  This other department is trying to convert those areas into the "revised" and (revision) "approved by" when the drawing is rev'ed up. Thoughts, comments, is there a specific standard or should I just roll over play dead?
