I don't think we need to worry about people poking arbitrary values
into a stdlib module and breaking things.
Agreed — and from years of participating in this community, I don’t think the danger of adding names to stdlib modules breaking people’s monkey-patched code has been a reason not to do it.
If someone's doing that and
their code breaks in Python 3.10, that's on them.
