[refpolicy] PyXML requirement for refpolicy

Refpolicy INSTALL file says that PyXML is required for building .
However I haven't got this library on my system and things are working well
so I'm wondering what I am missing. A simple "git grep import" shows "from
xml.dom.minidom import parse, parseString" in support/sedoctool.py  but
the xml module has been part of Python since Python 2.0 (according to 2.6
doc ) so this is not PyXML. Moreover PyXML main page says this library
is no longer maintained .
Is PyXML still a requirement of refpolicy and if not, is it possible to
remove it from the INSTALL file?
My motivation behind these questions is that an Arch Linux user packaged
PyXML a few days ago , described it as "Python XML, Dependency for
selinux-refpolicy"  and is asking me whether I want to maintain the
