Sorry, I don't have much time investigate this further, but here is a few references from my bookmarks:

* http://bugs.python.org/msg253473 (from issue 20438)
* https://hg.python.org/peps/rev/570913685f49 (this doesn't mention old APIs, but I think we can safely follow it for old APIs)

Another discussions about deprecation policy: issue 24203 (old threading API), issue 25486 (inspect.getargspec()) and issue 26041 (platform.dist() and platform.linux_distribution())

If you want to keep the old API removed, it would be great to add a note in Doc/whatsnew/3.6.rst in addtion to the Misc/NEWS entry.
