Not that it matters at this point, but LGTM!

Just two quick things to maybe change in the PEP:

" this operator introduce a dependency" -> "introduces"
" As breaking the backport" reads awkwardly as the other bullet points don't seem to assume reading "Con" before the sentence.

I'm ready to pronounce PEP 604 as accepted:

With the help of Maggie Moss the PEP has received some updates clarifying the specification; Maggie's implementation is also well under way.

Unless there are objections here within the next 24 hours I will accept the PEP, and the feature will launch in Python 3.10.

Thanks Philippe Prados for bringing this to PEP level and thanks to Maggie for her implementation work.
