I think sometimes you're excessively careful when publishing PEPs.

When I first read your post about PEP 285, and read you asking if
this should be implemented at all, I knew this would happen. This
makes people which have no idea what they're talking about feel like
they can influence something. Have a look at the ACCEPTED thread,
and compare it to the first thread. In the second thread, you were
decided to implement it. I'm not saying you shouldn't care about
anyone's opinion, I just think you should publish PEPs as accepted,
even if for some good reason, you fallback your idea (that's what
really happens, anyway).
