Unsure! Governance is needed to resolve conflict. When there's broad
agreement, "leaders" aren't really needed. For example, there's been a bit
of talk on python-ideas about adding a new `intmath` module capturing some
frequently reinvented functions for which decent implementations are known
but non-obvious (e.g., for generating the primes). Nobody could sanely
fight to death against something like that. Even whining about it would
appear petty ;-)
But let me ask, what do you propose to do about PEP 572? That’s already

Unless "accepted" has a meaning with which I'm unfamiliar, "exempt" is the
obvious answer. Changing to such an unfamiliar meaning would require the
very governance structure whose present existence is denied by the case
