I actually agree with this (hence why I wrote the PEP in the first place), I just became really, really, really, annoyed with certain organisations over the course of writing the PEP drafts and that is reflected in the tone of the latest draft. However, in deliberately not naming names, I now realise I've left it open to *other* organisations thinking "Does he mean us? How is this our fault?". For clarification: if an org is guessing whether or not I was referring to them in particular while drafting the PEP, then no, I'm not. The specific organisations concerned are in absolutely no doubt as to the fact I'm genuinely angry with them.
That said, while it certainly made me feel better at the time, I agree some of the current phrasing is not actually helpful in resolving the situation amicably for the benefit of all concerned, so I'll revise the offending sections of the PEP :)
Anger management through PEP writing! That's novel, but I can show you some more effective techniques at Pycon. :)
