A minimal file that only requires what's needed for bootstrapping the archiver is fine.

I don't see anything wrong with making this spec but I don't think it should be conflated with the PEP for a standard way to bootstrap the archiver. I also don't think it belongs as a PEP as its not a proposal to enhance python just a test of the new metadata and an example of what an archiver _could_ use as its format.
