IMO it makes sense because it has been said these compliance levels
will be updated each year. You're right that implementing PEP on it's
own is quite useless. But for this reason client developers will
probably implement one of the XEPs that rely on it. And if we don't
tell them which one they should implement, they will have to chose one
themselves. The advantage of this is, is that we'll see next year
which XEP that relies on PEP is the most popular, and then the
decision for the new compliance levels can be made based on this
