Nick Coghlan added the comment:

The old distutils docs are actively wrong in some areas, which is why they have been moved from their previous location.

They can't be deleted yet because they contain info that needs to be moved to either the distutils module docs, the setuptools docs, or the Python Packaging User Guide (although the latter is generally not the right place for detailed API references).

Assistance salvaging the information that still needs to be retained out of the middle of the now deprecated legacy docs would be greatly appreciated.
