Here's a suggestion for the PEP: come up with an extensible scheme. 
There are
situations where people may want to add yet another level (think of a 
value added
reseller who builds and customizes machines for a specific target 
and there some levels that are not needed on all platforms (such as the
network-wide one). We know the core is there, and we know the end user 
there, but the stuff in between should be customizable.
