It's hard to keep up with you but I'll try ;-)

By default distributions will decide which python to use.

If an activity is ported they can change the activity.info to use
python3. Really it shouldn't be a problem.

Note that python2.7 is supposed to have support till 2020.

Python3 is a much nicer language especially if you use non-english
characters since it fully supports utf-8 by default.

The real issue is what to do about telepathy. I wonder how many use
cases are covered by it.
