While raising ImportError certainly makes much more sense in this case, this change is backwards incompatible and there was no DeprecationWarning. I don't consider that fair.

As a certain compromise, we could maybe raise a custom ImportError+ValueError offspring (e.g. BeyondToplevelImportError)?

If feeling fancy, we could rise a DeprecationWarning when issublcass(BeyondToplevelImportError, ValueError) is used?
