The issue is that a lot of other software would need python-older and
python-oldest stacks.

There is some amount of software is written for whatever languages is in
the oldest active Ubuntu LTS and the developers really only look to update
it to newer stuff AFTER it has gone EOL. There is another amount of
software written for the latest LTS, and there is another set of software
which is written for the latest. I expect that each of those groups is
large enough to think they are the 'majority' of users of the languages in
question.. so have no urge to move slower/faster because they really don't
have the time to do so. [If you are focusing on the latest features it
takes as much time and energy to slow down and find alternative methods
which work in older stacks.. if you are focusing on long term stability or
your main job is some other thing.. porting some script you wrote to
something newer because XYZ now needs foobaz methods is not a high priority
