Because that's setuptools documentation, not PyPI's.

Let's move this small section to docs.python.org if PyPI implements
it. (or a variation if Jim's specification differs)

I propose to add a PyPI documentation page in distutils docs,
containing this specification,
unless Martin thinks it should be located somewhere else.
