I actually disagree on HTTP2 but that's beside the point.
What are the use-cases for LZMA that make it qualify to be part of the stdlib? Why was that library included? I think we shouldn't discriminate. If there are a couple of use-cases users need and the implementation is sufficiently stable, I see no reason not to include those libraries in stdlib.
I can't say this is the only reason, but back when distributing and installing packages was more difficult, we had a lower bar for stdlib inclusion.
