I was curious as to experiences with this section.   I talked with an inventor the other day who is taking this path.   It bascially indicates that the Examiner will draft the necessary claims if it is apparent that the Applicant is moving pro se, is not familiar with patent rules and regulations and patentable subject matter exists.  In the end, it does save the Applicant drafting fees.

Considering the claims one is likely to get by that route, the Applicant could save even more money by not filing the application in the first place.  Once upon a time, when examiners had authority to allow reasonable claims, that might have made sense.  Now, I'd say you're better off abandoning the application than just taking whatever claims the examiner would give you on her/his own.
