If by "unsynchronized" you mean handling mutiple indexes one client
side that are not mirrors, that's not a protocol the PEP defines.
(even though it gives some info on it)
This is the business of the client software, and there's no API design
required for that in this PEP.

The PEP defines the mirroring protocol and the pages to be maintained
in a PyPI like server.
