Hmmm. Is someone at MLB offering a consulting fee for definitions?
Draw the line? I suppose above my pay scale, but the use of say Hgh for tissue regeneration seems to fall in the PED catergory and the auto transfusion of normal blood products say in the an injured knee for a key player seems to be more like a surgical procedure than a drug. I would say draw the line where the consensus says it should be drawn. I would not allow anabolic steroids or use of hormonal therapy if not indicated by a defined deficiency. I would not allow drugs that are not being used for approved conditions. I would not have a problem with the occasional use of Toradol if the medical team deemed it no risk for long term damage to mask the pain. So yes to PRP, yes to nsaids and steroidal joint/ligament injections when supervised, yes to standard surgical procedures, no to most other stuff.
