Python supports ZIP64 extension since 2.5 (more 6 years ago). May be it is time to use it by default, leaving the option to disable it by specifying allowZip64=False.

Enabling ZIP64 seems like a reasonable default.

The documentation justifies the current 32-bit default with outdated information:
ZIP64 extensions are disabled by default because the default 'zip' and 'unzip' commands on Unix (the InfoZIP utilities) don't support these extensions.

But InfoZIP has supported the ZIP64 extension for 4 years (since UnZip 6.0, and Zip 3.0).

+1. Let's make it for 3.4.

See attached. The patch updates ZipFile, its documentation, and its unit tests.
