If we would keep the standard distribution of Python as it is and just have a Python SIG offer an additional extended distribution on python.org, then I don't have to care about the quality and security of additional code. The Python core team would neither own the code nor takes responsibility of the code.
Then it's an argument against the extended distribution. If its security and quality are not up to Python's quality standards, those people who don't want to install from PyPI may not accept the extended distribution either. And we may not want to offer those downloads from the main python.org page either, lest it taints the project's reputation.
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.
