*Here*, I mean "Visual Studio 11, any edition". I don't think the  
edition matters
for determining what version the project files have - any edition will be able
to read the project files, Express or not.

If you are specifically asking whether I would make the release of the
express edition a prerequisite to releasing Python: no, I wouldn't. I would
expect that Microsoft releases the express edition along with or soon after
the commercial editions, and the commercial edition is sufficient for running
the Python release process.
