I agree that OrderedDict is more a dict than a list, but it is not clear to me why this means that it cannot extend a dict's functionality in that respect.

OrderedDict already adds functionality to dict (preserving the order), so why shouldn't it also allow changes during iteration?

I think these two things actually come together quite naturally, since it is the existence of an ordering that makes the behavior under changes during iteration well defined.

Is there really a danger that people will get confused because a previously undefined operation now becomes officially supported with a defined meaning?
