In general, users and instructors are demanding more options, not less.

'extensions' could be renamed 'plug-ins'.  The current system could use some rethinking, since the choice between a feature being 'built-in' versus a 'built-in extension' is at least partly historical accident.  I think having Run-module be optional should go. Having that named 'ScriptBinding' in the extension config is mystifying to anyone who does not know the reason. With Run_module disabled, the debugger than only operates when a module is run makes no sense. etc.

Other than that, I am inclined to close this issue.

This proposal strikes me a similar to defining 'Beginner Python'.  Instructors may do that for didactic purposes (sometime infuriating more advanced students), but Python itself does not support subsetting.
