Why is there 'Docker' in the name? Is the container image restricted to
Docker runtime or can I use it with lxc, systemd-nspawn, rkt, or any
other container runtime, too?

There are likely legal issues with the name, too. After all 'Docker' is
a registered trademark of Docker, Inc [1]. I'd be careful and call it
'Python.Org Official Multiversion Development Supercalifragilistic
Container Image' instead.
