I don't think we need to settle on a single process for this. If
someone cares enough to write a PEP or file a bug let them do it. If
they don't but remember when the moratorium ends, we can't stop them.

I suppose a new tracker category for this would be fine to add. If
someone actually goes through the efforts of writing a PEP falling in
this category we can add a new PEP status too.
