I think that will be the right way to go about it, as this seems similar to
a lot of the problems that arise in the packaging interoperability space:
what really matters is what tool developers support in practice, so
documenting a proposed convention without a clear implementation plan
across common tools wouldn't really achieve a great deal.

This means that any new convention ideas need to be discussed and supported
by the tool developers, with python-dev & python-ideas really only getting
involved if some standard library adjustments are needed (e.g. updating
doctest to abide by any proposed conventions), or if the convention is
going to be captured as an informational PEP, rather than solely as a
recommended comment parsing library.
