My only comment on the changes:
I definitely do not approve of the use of the abbreviations "hi" and
"lo" in place of standard English "high" and "low"--human parsing of
"hi" and "lo" depends upon a familiarity with English which many people
in this world do not possess. In my book, three characters of extra
typing are more than offset by the improved accessibility.

As far as the whole PEP, I'm +0. I'd never use it.

Fighting unnecessary abbreviations wherever they are found,
