Because the python2 removal is about python2.  If you depend on a python2
package then the dependant application needs to likewise be dropped or
updated, but it also is at the same time somewhat out of scope from "us".

So it's either file py2removal bugs also against packages that don't depend
on python, but just use an application that happens to use python2, or the
current status quo.
That's my take at least.

Also, I am one of those that think we should be much more forceful, and the
current situation looks just fine for me, so I might be biased.
