I also expressed this worry at https://github.com/python/peps/pull/903

You could keep the positive part of the sponsoring idea (somebody acting 
as mentor) but drop the negative part (make it a hard requirement to 
find a sponsor supporting the proposal before the proposal can even 
become a draft PEP).
