The whole idea is just compose draft message/make a note, as at this time I don't know the valid receiver address.

And the URL You provided, does not say anything about email addresses validity of the the draft message to/cc/bcc fields.

Anyway, I figured out how to make it work, turned out that new TB requires hitting enter after text insertion.
