Actually, there is a sort of "python subpolicy" already, outlined in
/usr/doc/python/README.Debian.gz, but it isn't really formalized.
(Luckily, it's straightforward enough that it won't be hard to change
existing packages as the policy evolves.)

There is also a mailing list, debian-python, which is supposed to be
used for discussion of future Python policy, eg. the transition to
FHS, but it hasn't actually gotten any traffic yet.  If you're
interested in the topic, feel free to subscribe and help out.
