Desktop's arcpy has class dataDrivenPages, so why doesn't Pro's arcpy have class mapSeries?

ArcGIS for Desktop’s arcpy library’s object has a class called arcpy.mapping.dataDrivenPages, but there does not seem to be an equivalent in ArcGIS Pro’s arcpy library.  It would be a class named something like arcpy.mp.ArcGISProject(“…an_ArcGIS_Pro_project…”).listLayouts(“...layout_name…”)[0].mapSeries.  In other words, programmatically, at least when using Python, Desktop provides dataDrivenPages, but Pro does not provide a mapSeries.  The ArcGIS Pro functionality of Map Series appears to only be available interactively in a Pro session.  How come? What's an alternative?
