> Can I ask what sort of backwards-compatibility guarantees Python provides for these cases?

A deprecation warning for two releases (i.e. two years). Then it can be removed. So if people want to move forward with removing this then a DeprecationWarning would need to be raised in all places where _closed is set with a message stating the functionality is deprecated in 3.9 and slated for removal in 3.11 (along with appropriate doc updates, both for the module and What's New).
