I agree, this would be ideal. I'm not sure the metadata is there to
support it, though.
Each (version of each) package would need to register metadata
recording which versions of Python it's known to be compatible with
("has been tested with"). I'd love for this to be available, and
would be more proactive about testing software I've been involved in
releasing against more Python versions.
