I think this should have been done when the eclass was first committed.
When there is no default setting people will have to set something
themselves and it becomes much harder for the python team to provide a
smooth upgrade path by adding in new preferred targets later on.

Yes, arch-specific profiles would work, we do the same for ruby where
jruby and ree18 are only available on a few arches.
