My legalistic rationale for using cp3 is that it's actually the version tag, not the ABI tag. It seemed from my reading that you'd get tags like "cp35-abi3-win32", which is not helpful because you've still specified the minor version in the tag. Either it'll work in any CPython 3.x ("cp3") or it needs a specific minor version ("cp35"), so I didn't see the value in keeping the ABI tag.
Apologies, I got this understanding from PEP 425, not 3149/384. Using "abi3-win32" rather than "cp3-win32" would also make sense. I'm not strongly for or against either variant.
