I agree. The stdlib is not intended to do everything. That is why we maintain an index and optional repository for third party packages. For xml processing, lxml, in particular, is a recommended extension/replacement for advanced users. It includes an etree interface, to make migration from etree as easy as possible.

Javier, if you disagree, you could post to the python-ideas list. But I strongly suspect you would get about the same answer, that there is no point to duplicating existing external packages, and no desire to incorporate any more external packages, at least not for xml.
