I will reply to my own question: in fact, ImportError is more convenient. The "try/except ImportError" pattern is common, in some cases, it's acceptable to skip a whole module. For a direct example on import during Python shutdown, see the issue #21925: "ResourceWarning sometimes doesn't display" which adds "try/except ImportError" to be able to log warnings.

@Brett, Eric: So, do you like importlib_shutdown-2.patch?
