Yes, sorry I don’t mean to be pedantic, but it would be better policy-wise if the new parser were the default in time for the first beta rather than after.

That was the intention, i.e. releasing beta 1 with the new parser being the default. The current wording in the PEP are wrong, we'll fix that.
