I think you need to fill in the story on dynamic dependencies, or otherwise
this PEP will be a mystery to most people.

I *think* I understand your motivation for this, based on hearing your plan
(in another thread) of putting c libs into wheels, and actually declaring
them as dependencies... and because these libs can vary based on build
settings,  your dependencies are "dynamic"... but all that needs to be
explained in the PEP
