The PEP doesn't mention PyPI, and at present none of the modules there use "packaging" :) So it wasn't obvious to me that the PEP applies only to PyPI, and I have used modules that were not available from PyPI yet were still distributed and packaged somehow (not using "packaging" clearly).
The core of the PEP does not require packaging or PyPI. The Specification section is the most important part of the PEP. Yes, that does mention parse_version() from PEP 386, and the Version metadata field from PEP 345, but I think those cross-references are fine, because it's just referring to the information contained there.
