The pep seems to dictate that the source by default must be read as

Python will default to Latin-1 as standard encoding if no other
encoding hints are given.

Jython already reads the python source with the default java encoding
which usually depends on the PCs locale.

If a small loophole could be added to that requirement, then the pep
have my full support.
