I think this is an area where ipaddress just inherited ipaddr's behaviour without challenging it.

As Peter isn't currently particularly active, and I stepped back from ipaddress maintenance some time ago (since I don't work heavily enough with raw IP addresses to have the right design instincts to arbitrate edge cases like this), I'd suggest raising both this and #27683 on python-dev, pointing out that we used to have the "/31" special case (treating it the same as "/30") and inadvertently lost it in some other refactoring, but have never special cased "/32".
