Clarification request:

Is this a statement that anything beyond PEP8 renaming will be
rejected, or only that proposals will be ignored until they come with
a complete map inside a PEP?

In other words, will we definately have the largely mechanical

    UserDict -> userdict
    cPickle -> _pickle

or is there still an outside chance of

    UserDict -> collections.userdict
or even
    cPickle -> formats._pickle
