Your example with django is very good, indeed. I guess it is located in
main just for historical reasons, we should definitely move such stuff
out from main in future.

I think we won't switch to python3 as default at least in the next
version of Desktop Fresh. Fedora has been moving towards python3 as
default for several years and is still not ready to perform such a
switch. Though I can see a lot of recent activities in this way
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/Python_3_as_Default) and they
hope to switch to python3 in F22. Let's see.
To be sure, developers of python itself want all of us to switch to
python3 (and python2.x is in maintenance mode now, but support is
guaranteed until May, 2015). Unfortunately, there are still a lot of
applications that were not migrated to python3. No wonder that one of
the steps in Fedora's plan is to help upstream apps to migrate to python3...
