My understanding is that what you did:
import xml.parsers.expat
is now the proper way to use expat. After some searching, it seems the sentence about direct use of pyexpat being deprecated refers to
"The location and name of the PyExpat module have moved in Python v2.6.1 from  xml.dom.ext.reader.PyExpat to xml.parsers.expat"
This is puzzling becasue xmo.parsers.expat dates back to 2.0 while I see no doc for xml.dom.ext... .

The deprecation notice should be deleted from the 3.x docs.
