I don't think this is the rationale. I think the rationale is that the
first release wrote right into the encodings directory of Python, and people
complained about that. Then, he changed it to a separate package, and
could not figure out to make it more convenient. I think the Chinese
and Korean codecs are the same because they copied the infrastructure
from the Japanese codecs.
We are both guessing.
