Thanks. I really did not know what you were referring to, because

I thought you were asking for information why a change is made.
To me, this is the same as asking "what was the rationale for the
change"; that question is (or should be) answered in the PEP.

And indeed, it might be better to direct remarks about this document
directly to him. He is the only one making changes to it, so only he
can offer more than sympathy.
