[Doc-SIG] PEP 258

I am working on a project for my Masters' Verification & Validation class.  The 
topic of the project is to explore the possibilities of implementing a modeling 
language for Python that supports Design-by-Contract and Unit-testing.  In my 
research, I came across the Docutils project.  I was wondering why the project 
was rejected from the PEP.  I also noticed that the Docstring Processing System 
Framework (PEP-256), was also rejected.  The reason given for the rejection of 
PEP-256 is that, "Proposal seems to have run out of steam."  Since PEP-256 
serves as a, "Rationale" for PEP-258, I was also wondering if PEP-258 was 
rejected for the same reason.  Both projects seem like worthy pursuits.  What 
other reasons, if any, are there for rejecting them?

Thank you very much for your help.
