I don't see any information in the PEP for alternate proposals that were
made during its drafting. It's customary to explain what alternative
proposals have been advanced, and give the PEP champion's explanation of
why they weren't chosen.

This is, of course, in the interests of forestalling further repetition
of those same discussions.
