I’m not sure there are many developers on RHEL7 without access to a Python 3 that can be used as part of RTEMS developer tools.   I definitely agree there are many who can’t use Python 3 for anything that ships to run on RHEL7, but for development Red Hat licensees can use the Red Hat Software Collections and someone like me can use EPEL.  Both have 3.5 and 3.6 available.  I don’t use “software collections” but I did a quick google.
