New submission from Chris Jerdonek:

This issue is to clarify the policy in PEP 1 regarding non-substantive changes 
to PEPs in the Final state (minor clarifications, rephrasings, etc).

Currently, PEP 1 says, "In general, Standards track PEPs are no longer modified 
after they have reached the Final state."

(from )

However, others have pointed out that minor clarifications and rephrasings are 
in fact allowed:

The updated wording should also state the policy or process regarding such 
changes (who is allowed to make them and whether and from whom approval is 
needed to make such changes, etc).
