At the time we introduced this behavior in python3, it was considered an enhancement and thus not suitable for backporting.  So you'd have to advocate for backporting it on python-dev.  My guess is it won't be approved, especially since there are significant other differences in the python2 vs python3 email packages (eg: BytesParser/BytesGenerator).
