Nit: replace "seems to be" with "is". There's no seeming about it.
By the way, since you didn't know about PEPs, you should look at
http://www.python.org/peps/pep-0001.html (PEP Guidelines) wherein
you'll find this statement:
"Once the authors have completed a PEP, they must inform the PEP
editor that it is ready for review. PEPs are reviewed by the BDFL
and his chosen consultants, who may accept or reject a PEP or send
it back to the author(s) for revision."
Note also the status of PEP 275: "draft", which means not yet ready
