I think it is too late. Python 3.9 has been released already.  Reverting the change is also breaking change.

PEP 100 says:
"Search functions are expected to take one argument, the encoding name in all lower case letters and with hyphens and spaces converted to underscores"
https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0100/#codecs-coder-decoders-lookup

But codecs.register() says:
"Search functions are expected to take one argument, being the encoding name in all lower case letters".

I don't know historical reason why two document are inconsistent.
