I think using codecs.open() with a non-text codecs is a legit use case, but is not the best way. I suggest:

1) Encourage of using io.open() rather than codecs.open() for text encodings. codecs.open() was recommended way since it worked in all Python versions, including <2.6, but now we can ignore this advantage.

2) Discourage of using non-text codecs.

3) Deprecate codecs.open() (may be after EOL for Python 2.7).
