I don't think TI-89 should be the exception. I don't think it is a good idea to try to make a general purpose programming language like Python into a (mathematical) clone of the TI-89 calculator just to satisfy the tiny minority of users who are numerically naive TI-89 users.
I'm surprised: are physical calculators (TI-89) still in use today?
I don't know about other places, but in Australia graphing calculators, including the TI-89 series, are required for all high school school students doing maths.
