If we want doing something to reduce mass of work, we should

Quite radical! : )
Somewhat understandable but it's pretty hard to decide whether both
are really met. Especially the condition "is not a dependency of a py2-only
package" is likely a moving target.
=> Probably this approach would lead to a much bigger mess.

I think the hardest part is how we could handle it. Does It require we stop
providing python3-x and just provide python-x under python3 ? Or a
provide/obsolete from each py3 packages ? I don't know.

The hardest part is how to handle new dependencies introduced by py2-only
packages added *after* making the decision for the providing a py3-only package.

=> IMHO it's not worth the effort thinking about all the corner-cases.
Please leave it like it is.

Ciao, Michael.
