Exactly.  But currently most announcements to don't spawn
discussion, so it hasn't been a critical issue; until Followup-To is
fixed, I'm opposed to requiring PEPs to be posted there.  Note that it's
not trivial, because has a gateway to an e-mail list, where
Reply-To: should be set.  It'll likely require some Mailman work -- and hasn't even been upgraded to current Mailman yet.

A: No.
Q: Is top-posting okay?
