In scanning over issue 8828, I see no discussion of the consequences of not using MOVEFILE_COPY_ALLOWED in Antoine's patch, so it appears that this behavior change was unintentional.

Correct, the copy employed by shutil.move for a cross-volume move is not as optimized as what MoveFile uses (basically CopyFile), but unless you're moving a file that's very large it shouldn't matter, and even then without testing I don't know if it's a significant difference relative to the throughput of the disk(s) involved.
