Generic functions are a lesser-known paradigm than OO, and nowhere do common Python documents (including the official docs) try to teach them. That means the first public appearance of generic functions in the stdlib should really be well thought out if we don't want to encourage poor practices. I agree with Guido that a PEP is required to flesh out all the details.
