The title should be self explanatory.
I needed Drag-and-drop for a project I was working on, (maybe I shouldn't be refering to it in the past tense as I haven't started yet) so I checked the documentation for tkinter and found:
3.3.0 b1
tkinter.dnd 
Drag-and-drop support for tkinter. This is experimental and should become deprecated when it is replaced with the Tk DND.

3.2.2 (and .2.3)
tkinter.dnd 
Drag-and-drop support for tkinter. This is experimental and should become deprecated when it is replaced with the Tk DND. 

2.7.3
Tkdnd 
Drag-and-drop support for Tkinter. This is experimental and should become deprecated when it is replaced with the Tk DND.

I think that tkinter.dnd needs some documentation, whether or not it is replaced with Tk DND.

For that matter, none of the following have docs:
tkinter.colorchooser
tkinter.commondialog
tkinter.filedialog
tkinter.font
tkinter.messagebox
tkinter.simpledialog
tkinter.dnd
Perhaps this should be remidied? One sentence usualy does not describe the use of an entire module.

We could at least put links to some documentation.

There is documentation of these modules, it's just that it's in the modules themselves.

I opened #25237 for commondialog, messagebox, and colorchooser.
