I think it's been a long time since Windows/IE no longer mess up with file extensions, so long I can't recall anymore. I just tried on a Windows 7 + IE 11 (released in 2013) to download the .tar.bz2 archive from and it worked alright.

To me, that entry makes Python looks bad ("the archive format we use does not work correctly on the most common, main desktop platform"), the problem seems to not exist anymore, and IMHO, is not really Python related.

I think that entry should be removed.
