Éric Araujo <merwok at netwok.org> added the comment:

There has been a lengthy discussion on the fellowship-of-the-packaging ML about what should or should not be a command.  One side argues that distutils commands should only concern themselves with packaging, distributing and installing, the other side defends that distutils, like a makefile, is a place to put useful functionality for developers.  test is in a gray area, lint even more.  I’ll ask for feedback on this later.
