+1, just noting that this was discussed not all that long ago, without
much push to move back to Python supporting the VFX platform.
It seems there was an assumption from some developers more recently
that the VFX-platform reaching Python 3.9 would mean Blender's Python
was following the VFX platform again (instead of this being incidental
and a temporary situation).

In general +1 for your proposal, staying compatible gives an assurance
that Blender will run for organizations using Blender with the VFX
platform without limiting us too much.
It would be good to hear from users who take advantage of the VFX
platform though.
