I would say it there so that people can use python to "decrypt" an "encrypted" 
zip archive they have been sent that was generated by some other tool.  I would 
say this is not a particularly strong use case since there are other tools that 
can be used for this, but as Antoine said removing the "feature" could break 
existing working code, so we are unlikely to do it.
