My latest status is that a decision on the future of the "parser" argument is still pending. See #20219.

It's correctly deprecated in the sense that passing any previously existing parser isn't going to be supported anymore, but passing an XMLPullParser (which is new in Py3.4 and thus can't have been used in existing code) now makes perfect sense (IMHO). So, in a way, it might end up as a sort of argument recycling rather than argument deletion.
