Because it's been there for a long time, and there's a general
concensus that it's useful to have it. The usefulness of tcpslice in
the base system is more debatable.

Put another way: "we shouldn't have a utility in the base system that
contains a bug that renders it mostly useless". Whether that means
importing a version that has the bug fixed or whether it means
removing it, well, I don't have a strong opinion.
