It may be overkill, but my take would be a BCP PEP that summarizes
consensus best practice as well as option rules for releases, and then
each release would have its own PEP briefly describing any deviations
from the BCP, including both "I use variant A" and "I'm experimenting
with practice Alpha".  The former should be explained in the BCP, the
rationale for the latter in the release PEP.
