The main risk is that people start to use it
If people use it, it should be taken as a sign that the function is useful and deserves to be public API.
If it's useful, then someone can write a justification (possibly a PEP) and we can agree to add it.
More likely it's just convenient. The cost of that convenience is that we can never optimise internals because they are now public API. Better off never to have leaked the details.
