IMO inconsistency with tarfile is not very relevant.

About the zip utility: are you saying that the unix unzip command is not able to inspect or extract distutils sdists?

About zipimport, the question is: are sdists meant to be directly importable (IMO no).

That said, if it is a minor change with no downsides, I wouldn’t oppose it.  I just wanted to be clear on the reasons / benefits.
