That stage has already passed. It was true before 3.0, and even before
3.1. Now that 3.1 is out and labeled stable, the same backward-compatibility
conventions as for 2.x are in effect; you will find much opposition on
python-dev for such changes. That does not mean that no change is possible
in 3.x, but that was also never the case for 2.x. Compatible changes are ok,
and so are changes that undergo the proper deprecation process.
