How to make extension facet support draft mechanism on Object Page?

I use Fiori element - List Report, and generated UI by annotations in CDS views. Then I use BOPF(with draft mechanism) to support draft mechanism.

The Facet 1 is generated by annotation. But the text is shown as plain text, which experience is not good. So I made an extension facet 2(want to replace facet 1 with facet 2), which can support HTMLtext display and richTextEditor.

But the problem is, when I click "edit" button to edit this object page, facet 1 can support draft mechanism automatically, but the facet 2 can't.

How can the draft mechanism also supports extension facet?

    May be this is too late, but for others to know, The Fiori Elements has a model "ui" which has a property "editable".

    Editable property of all the controls in your extension facet should be bound to this model.

    eg: editable = {ui>/editable}

      Hi Pratheek,Thank you for the quick response. I was thinking the draft support for extensions should work out of the box as I am using entity set from the same model used by my Fiori elements application. Please find below a copy of my view extension. Could you kindly take a look? Many thanks!
