More seriously, I think it's extremely important that we do clarify those boundaries.
I should add that I'm more than happy to write something up that more clearly defines the role of the "packaging standards" process (and by extension, my role as packaging BDFL-delegate (we really need a mode concise term!)). It's not something that I think we've needed up to now, but if there's going to be confusion between "what's a PyPA issue" and "what's a packaging standards issue", I'm happy to do so. It may take me a week or to to do so, though. (Nick, I'd want to involve you as an initial reviewer of that document, if that's OK).
Personally, there's no real confusion in my mind over where the boundary lies, but Dustin's document makes it pretty clear than not everyone shares this clarity ;-)
I'm sure we can come up with some distinction, but I wonder: is having two separate processes actually serving a useful purpose? Either way it's basically the same people (i.e., the people reading this), doing the same thing (writing a document, debating it, building consensus, etc.), right, with slightly different set dressing?
