This overall looks good, but I would suggest re-arranging a bit to put
the gory C-level details later and substitute an overview where you
currently have the gory details.  Even if your PEP is not accepted,
you've done a tremendous job writing up this proposal, one that will
serve as useful documentation for other people.  I think you might as
well go ahead and post your next draft to comp.lang.python in addition
to python-ideas -- you'll get more feedback that way.

Side note: I hope you already know this won't get into 2.6/3.0 -- they
are in beta.

Definitely reST is preferred over HTML.
