In general, I would be against stripping square brackets if the host and port have already been separated, e.g. in the address tuple used with socket.create_connection() etc. It feels like unnecessary double processing, which should already have been done at a higher level.

But I guess you could make the argument that adding this feature in HTTPConnection simplifies the API by improving consistency with the case where the port is not specified separately. But I would still say it is not a bug fix nor regression, and should be documented as being added in the next Python version (3.7 atm).
