Also, we want to be careful to not guarantee implementation details that are 
subject to change.  Most of these are not intended for users to base their code 

IIRC, Guido already opined on some of these (preferring to keep most of them 
undocumented) in some other tracker item this year.

As one data point, I worked on the decimal module and defined the public API.  
The __decimal_context__ method is not part of the public API.
