Because in every release of Python they have been undocumented, in any recent release of Python they have been inaccurate (at best) and probably unnecessary, they have been unmaintained for years, the presence of the plat-* dir on sys.path slows down imports from any directory after it on sys.path, the problem they purport to solve has other much better solutions, and this discussion started 5 years ago with only the the slightest of defenses from MvL.
