I don't have Py3 installed at all on all my machines.

It seems you have no clue how this eclass works. If you have only py3 installed,
and you set PYTHON_TARGETS="python2_7" then dev-lang/python:2.7 will be added to
DEPEND and installed.
The user asked to install for py2:7 so he will get this done. It's not a
usability regression - it's expected behaviour: user wants to build for FOO:X.Y
then the eclass adds FOO:X.Y to DEPEND.
I fail to see how would you like to "correctly and transparently" (whatever it
means to you) do it. If you don't accept as a solution an error message or
pulling in py2:7 then there's no other way - you either install missing
dependencies or die with an error, no third way.
