I would say it there so that people can use python to "decrypt" an "encrypted" zip archive they have been sent that was generated by some other tool.  I would say this is not a particularly strong use case since there are other tools that can be used for this, but as Antoine said removing the "feature" could break existing working code, so we are unlikely to do it.
