I think the documentation note is a good idea.

But I disagree with deprecating "cmd" unless it is actively falling
apart and no longer working, not just languishing with no feature
improvements. Just in the last week, I've been reminded twice that many
people using Python do so where they cannot just arbitrarily pip install
<whatever>, and if a library isn't in the std lib, they can't use it
without a lot of pain:
