I would say the difference that before, the non-committer proposer just
needed to convince some committer that the PEP was 'a good idea' and
worth being discussed. Now, that person needs to persuade some committer
that not only is it a good idea, but that it is worth the committer
committing themselves to supporting the proposer through the process.
