Sorry, but this was premature.  The mail on distutils-sig only describes 
the syntax for a new field without any explanation of the semantics and 
use case, not the relation to the Setup-Requires and Test-Requires 
fields that we’ve been discussing for some time (and which would make 
part of the Extra proposal obsolete).  I know Alexis and I are not as 
active as other devs in mailing lists and PEPs, but these things are on 
our radar and we want to push them forward.  Please allow the discussion 
to take place before editing the packaging PEPs.
