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!
Personally, I don't think that encoding the acceptance status in the ID is very useful. There's so much more about the PEP that doesn't get encoded in the ID, like *what it is about*. For example, if somebody mentioned PEP 450, or PAP 450, to me, I would have no clue what it was, and I wrote it!
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)".
