New setuptools issue: https://github.com/pypa/setuptools/issues/1179 (I hadn't filed it yet when I wrote the previous comment)

With Jason's +1 on the setuptools issue, I've gone ahead and hit the merge button on Thomas's PR: https://github.com/pypa/python-packaging-user-guide/commit/34c37f0e66821127a8cbe59fa1f33dca0cf20d97

The spec is now available here https://packaging.python.org/specifications/entry-points/, and clarifications and corrections can be submitted as follow-up PRs (as for other PyPA specifications).
