I think if the test is conducted without closing stderr, it will only check that stdin/stdout are handled correctly (you could assume that if one handled stdin/stdout correctly, they did the same with stderr).

However, since I've used a context manager (_NoStandardFds) to handle the closing/restoration of the standard fds, I think the benefit (fuller test coverage) outweighs the cost (potentially harder debugging if there's a problem with the test); if I'm not mistaken, the context manager should restore your fds before the default exception handler writes to stdout (at least in the parent and the child prior to exec()).

n.b.: I've also created a Rietveld issue for this patch:
