I think the whole argument amounts to hand waving anyway. You are inventing an extended distribution which doesn't exist (except as Anaconda) to justify that we shouldn't accept more modules in the stdlib. But obviously maintaining an extended distribution is a lot more work than accepting a single module in the stdlib, and that's why you don't see anyone doing it, even though people have been floating the idea for years.

Do I need to keep going?
I'm sure you could. So what? The point is that it's a lot of work to maintain if you want to do it seriously and with quality standards that would actually _satisfy_ the people for whom PyPI is not an option.
Notice how the serious efforts in the list above are from commercial companies. Not small groups of volunteers. Yes, it's not unheard to have distributions maintained by volunteers (Debian?). It's just _hard_ and an awful lot of work, and apparently you're not volunteering to start it. So saying "we should make an extended distribution" if you're just waiting for others to do the job doesn't sound convincing to me, it just feels like you are derailing the discussion.
