There is no currently recommended way to make such annotations, so how 
could the PEP mention it?

I think the problem you are going to face is that almost any function could 
potentially throw almost any exception. That may mean it is a good idea to 
document what exceptions you expect to be thrown, but it also means you 
cannot expect those annotations to be anything other than documentation.
