Yep.  I agree.  I do, however, want to get these amendments settled 
and make sure they get carried over to whatever spec is the successor 
to PEP 333.  I've had a lot of trouble following exactly what was 
changed in 444, and I'm a tad worried that several new ambiguities 
may be being introduced.  So, solidifying 333 a bit might be helpful 
if it gives a good baseline against which to diff 444 (or whatever).
