Sounds like a fine idea, once we figure out what goes into a JEEP. :) 
(And no, I don't accept that whole JEP thing, I think JEEP is much more 
catchy :P) If you look at the Python PEPs (now there's a good acronym), 
they are often quite simple, more like a short proposal or many of our 
draft protocol docs, not nearly as big as an RFC. For all I know the 
Python dudes are already using a DTD, it might be cool to check (I'll 
contact them about it). We could probably even use a subset of the 
DocBook DTD for this (author, abstract, etc.).
