We already have such buildbots, they are in the "unstable" category. You can browse through existing buildbots here: https://www.python.org/dev/buildbot/
I can't see how to distinguish "stable" from "unstable" (or to view just the "unstable" category.
Take http://buildbot.python.org/all/waterfall?category=3.x.stable&category=3.... remove the category GET argument that you don't want to see, e.g. to only see unstable buildbots use http://buildbot.python.org/all/waterfall?category=3.x.unstable
What do those two categories have to do with "supported" and "unsupported"?
Antoine can give the definitive answer, but I view stable buildbots as staying up and testing critical platforms. I.e. when I submit a patch I make sure the stable buildbots are always green (unless it's a transient failure) and I don't worry about the unstable ones (I view them as more informative than necessary). Basically red stable buildbot should block a release.
