Well, given that "you shouldn't use pip install on your
distribution-installed Python", I'm not sure that's as clear cut a
factor as it first seems. Yes, I know people should use virtual
environments, or use "--user" installs, but distributions still have a
maintenance burden providing distro-packaged modules, whether they are
in the stdlib or not. If unittest were removed from the stdlib, I'd
confidently expect that distributions would still provide a
python3-unittest package, for example...
