Hmm.  We don't in general mention 2.7 in the python3 docs (in fact I found only one mention of it, in the logging package docs).  I suppose this might be confusing enough to warrant it.  But it might be better to rewrite that sentence to make it clear that the python binary you get in your virtual environment is the one that the venv command comes from.  That should make it pretty clear you can't use it with 2.7, since 2.7 doesn't include venv.
