It was preserved for compatibility with Python 2.7. From PEP 4:

"In order to facilitate writing code that works in both Python 2 & 3 simultaneously, any module that exists in both Python 3.5 and Python 2.7 will not be removed from the standard library until Python 2.7 is no longer supported as specified by PEP 373."

3.9 will be the first Python 3 release after the EOL of 2.7.
