Guido van Rossum said in "this was an explicit design
decision that I made nearly 30 years ago".

I think the best way to avoid silently accepting such values would be to use @gregory.p.smith to use a function call to create the dictionary since duplicate keyword arguments raise an exception there.

I suggest to close this bug report since it works as expected.
