Not my personal concern.  And certainly not a direct concern for nearly 
all uses of itertools.product.

Why are you so anxious to generalize your personal negative views to

does not need cross-products today or in the next few months, 
potentially valuable information for when the final releases do arrive, 
maybe in September.
