I think the best place would be in python.org wiki itself,

As Jeff Rush mentioned earlier, the best way to think about all requirements
would be to write
a series of PEP.

So I think this would be a great starting point in Python.org wiki,

I am preparing write now a few pages so we can gather all the info, i'll
give you the link when it is ready
