At the risk of muddying the waters even further, I'd like to make _normalize a public parameter in Python 3.7. There's an interesting operation you can do with fractions, the mediant:

http://www.mathteacherctk.com/blog/2011/02/06/mediant-fractions-and-simpsons-paradox/

It's easy to work with mediants provided you have a way to prevent fractions from being normalised automatically.

So I'm +1 on making _normalize a keyword-only argument for 3.6 as a first step.
