Gah, seven years on from Python 2.7's release, I still get caught by
that. I'm tempted to propose we reverse that decision and go back to
enabling them by default :P

If app devs don't want their users seeing deprecation warnings, they
can silence them globally during app startup, and end users can do the
same in PYTHONSTARTUP for their interactive sessions.
