That's just broken.
I think that it is wrong to think of Debian's "python3" package as purporting to provide the "standard Python install".
This is really more properly though of as the Python *runtime* environment, i.e. the minimum stuff you need to run programs written in Python.
I think it's wrong to have a different setup on different plateforms. Python is a portable language. It's also a language you use for quick scripts and from a lot of non professional devs.
Unifying the python experience and making sure it's easy for beginners to get started is a very important goal IMO.
Python is actually quite good at it. But we can make it even better.
