I am thinking of proposing to name accepted PEPs as PAPs namely: Python Accepted Proposals.
There's precedent for *not* doing that kind of thing. "RFC" stands for "Request For Comment", and it stays that way long after it has become adopted as a standard!
Indeed, I also first thought about RFCs and how they remain being called RFCs. I see no reason why we should think about changing PEPs.
Maybe posts to the Python lists could be passed through a filter that looks for PEP references and adds information to them.
E.g. if someone typed "PEP 9876" into a post it might get replaced by "PEP 9876 - Add turboencabulation module to stdlib (Rejected)".
This is an interesting thought. I wonder how hard this would be to implement in practice.
