I see no problem if you are just delivering only one python 3.X interface,
that usually is typical of providing a main program with a python

your python3-wx, mine postgresql-plpython and the recent
python3-cv2 all fall in this case.

The scheme python 36 / 37 /38 is more for python purely packages
