Perhaps Zach or someone else can remove them from the list.

One way to answer that question is to look at the macOS versions we support with python.org installers.  If you look at the current download pages for current releases, you'll see we provide installers that support macOS versions from 10.6 (Snow Leopard) theough the current 10.13 (High Sierrs) so we definitely support those versions.  Earlier versions are supported on a best-effort basis.
