From a procedural point of view, I would say that it's entirely appropriate
for a PEP to have open questions, alternatives, and options.  Have it lay out
the arguments pro and con and let Guido or the appointed PEP czar make the
final decision.  Then the PEP can be amended with those decisions, and if
folks still think more needs to be done, a follow up PEP can be filed.
