I understand we're talking about generating the PEP 425 tags here. If not, please ignore this next paragraph.
The "algorithm" essentially needs to be a check for "is this an AIX python" and also generate/provide a signal of what the system/binary compatibility looks like. This algorithm would executed on a target Python interpreter (which can be anything from Python 2.7, 3.3, 3.7 or a hypothetical 3.10), to check if that interpreter compatible with whatever tag you plan to generate.
Reiterating - continue only here, or expand and include python-dev?
python-dev has, practically, delegated Packaging discussions to this list.
(opinion) If you're okay with changing communication channel, I have a strong preference for using discuss.python.org/c/packaging instead. Anyway, most of the packaging-related discussions have been happening there lately.
