Seems like you didn't read PEP 1 carefully enough:
"Vetting an idea publicly before going as far as writing a PEP is meant to
save the potential author time. Many ideas have been brought forward for
changing Python that have been rejected for various reasons...."
Asking people to write a PEP before discussing ideas would stifle
discussion and innovation.

python-ideas is not a documentation database. It's a discussion list.
