The Taxpayer Advocate Service has published an article titled “NTA Blog: You Too Can Make a Difference in Tax Administration,” which provides information regarding Form 8857. The article begins as follows:

In June 2021, the IRS released the revised draft form, which included several improvements. Commenting on IRS products is an important avenue taxpayers can use to make themselves heard and suggest improvements for tax administration.

You can view the draft form by searching for Form 8857 here.
