What is this "it" that you propose to just do? I'm sure I have an opinion on it once you describe it to me.

"Non-superhuman."  "Noncharacter" is a case in point.  And yes, it's
properly spelled with U+1F4A9, but my spellchecker has "parental
controls" and I can't enter it.

That's exactly the way I feel.  So I would say "damn the torpedos" and
"Just Do It" and if it's wrong we'll fix it in the mythical-never-to-
come-take-me-away Python 4000.

Of course we should wait to see if Guido or other reliable oracle has
a particular opinion, but I really don't think we're going to get
proof without trying.
