This would imply that if SLE sticks with Python 2

Python 2 for roughly 9 years. I'd say that is unrealistic and thus it is
a pretty good bet that SLE 15 will have Python 3 as the default

So it is not decided what SLE 15 will do?

I'd prefer to go with python3.
python2 packages will most likely be available for a grace period, to make
switching easier.

But this requires two things:
a) The 'Requires python-foo' found in packages need to be changed to
'python2-foo' resp. 'python3-foo'.
b) We need to get the packages having still the 'python-' prefix instead of
'python2-' or 'python3-' adapted soonish.

My current assumption regarding the minor version is that we will go with 3.6.
