The top of the style guide basically does that:

  This style guide has been converted to several PEPs (Python
  Enhancement Proposals): PEP 8 for the main text, PEP 257 for docstring
  conventions. See the PEP index.

Perhaps that warning could be strengthened to suggest that the style
guide is outdated and (apparently) unfinished?  Beyond that, I don't see
any contradiction here, and I don't see any reason to spend time
updating the style guide.
