line continuation for lines ending in "and" or "or"

I've always appreciated Python's lack of requirement for a semi-colon
at the end of each line. I also appreciate its rules for automatic
line continuation. If a statement ends with a "+", for example, Python
recognizes that the statement obviously must continue.

I've noticed, however, that the same rule does not apply when a line
ends with "and," "or," or "not." Yes, it's a minor point, but
shouldn't the same rule apply?

Seems like it would be easy to add.
