What is wrong with PendingDeprecationWarning? What problem do you want 
to solve at the cost of removing this feature?

Now, when DeprecationWarning is displayed by default in the interactive 
session, in __main__ and in development runtime mode (and this list can 
be extended), PendingDeprecationWarning is useful again. Even if the 
interpreter itself would not use it, it is used in third-party projects.
