I'd like the PEP to rule that the standard library may
designate some of its packages as namespace packages,
and also specifically declare the encodings package as
a namespace package. This would allow to install additional
encodings just by mere installation, without the need of
having a search function registered at startup.

Not sure what other packages would be candidates for
namespace packages.
