Yes. But of course, a PEP being an official PEP does not mean there
can't be any more changes to it. So the question is, at what point does
a pre-PEP become a PEP? Some PEPs have a $Revision: 1.20$, after all.

49. If any one take money from a merchant, and give the merchant a
field tillable for corn or sesame and order him to plant corn or sesame in
the field, and to harvest the crop; if the cultivator plant corn or sesame
in the field, at the harvest the corn or sesame that is in the field shall
belong to the owner of the field and he shall pay corn as rent, for the
money he received from the merchant, and the livelihood of the cultivator
shall he give to the merchant.
