Because only exporting matters. Importing is no problem: You can
easily *remove* stuff from the distribution, by creating a copy of
package that doesn't have the code that cannot be imported. That would
be the job of whoever wants to import it.

Exporting also only matters from the servers which host the Python
distribution, i.e. the US and the Netherlands.
