It must have changed since I last looked at a feature request on the tracker - using a type rather than keyword is fine by me.
I'm fairly certain the rfe type was there ever since the switchover (at least that's what subversion says: the rfe type was added along with all other types in r52825, on 2006-11-23).
Perhaps we had duplication between the type and the keyword then? It's also possible I'm just misremembering and actually thinking of a completely different bug tracker that had nothing to do with Python.
It's a bit of a moot point now anyway.
