That's because completion of discussion has never been a requirement for writing a PEP.
Not for drafting, but for submitting. For my own PEP submission, I received the specific feedback that it needed a "proper title" before being assigned a PEP number.
What does that have to do with "completion of discussion"? I don't know what the editor told you, but in the PEP "proper title" is well- defined and not very stringent: "accurately describes the content".
My goal for submitting the draft was to receive a PEP number to avoid the awkwardness of discussing a PEP without an obvious title. Perhaps PEP 1 should be revised to clarify the expectations for PEP submission.
That's definitely grounds for refusing to approve the PEP, but the approval criteria are in the section "PEP Editor Responsibilities & Workflow". I'm submitting a pull request (python/peps #789 on GitHub) to also put it in the section "Submitting a PEP", under the bullet "The PEP editors review your PR for structure, formatting, and other errors."
