OK. That's not what I understood since he proposed a cloud system run
by the PSF for the PyPI mirrors.  Which implied (to me) those were
official mirrors.

The goal of the PEP is to address the official mirrors of course,
listed at the mirrors.pypi.python.org DNS (and also provide a protocol
others can reuse as well)
