I think the argument started because Collin's PEP actually
went further than that, and asserted that there wouldn't
be any problems created by this lack of specification,
for reasons which are highly debatable. Not surprisingly,
a high amount of debate on that point ensued.

If the PEP simply said something like "We'll look at
this again after we've had some experience", it might
not have been so controversial.
