My understanding is that backward compatibility, while nice to retain, was not considered a stopper for cleaning up interfaces in py3.  Exactly how considered this change was, I have no idea, but as I said it does make sense to me.  As for 2.x, what's there is what's there, as far as I can see.  Florent could speak to whether or not that API is likely to change in 2.7, but I doubt it will.
