I agree 100% that the EAPI ebuild authors can expect should be documented
and specified precisely. The concern was over process, as to whether the
stance has changed wrt the PMS hosted on Gentoo infra being
the "authorised" version.

Certainly correctness is vital. Wrt to discussing future changes, the manner
in which that is done matters too, imo.

As genone pointed out, it won't be authorised until the Council approve it,
so my main concern is alleviated.
