That's why the references exist, so that you look the details up. But knowing at a glance the status of a PEP immediately changes the perception of the text at hand
You are very optimistic that people will remember to make this distinction. Personally, I suspect I'll consistently forget and just use "PEP" anyway...
I know that PEPs have different status as enumerated here
I'm surprised you don't feel that "Rejected" status is worth capturing as well. And what about Provisional?
Honestly, if it's not clear from context whether someone is talking about an existing language feature (i.e., an accepted PEP) or an open proposal (or, for that matter, a proposal that got abandoned, or a rejected idea, etc) then they probably aren't explaining themselves very clearly anyway. Maybe just ask them to clarify if you don't want to check for yourself?
