Indeed, that was a typo + copy/paste.  I meant to say Py_UNICODE_* and _Py_UNICODE_*.  Sorry about the confusion.

Because it has the bug and we can fix it (the macros will be private so that we don't add any feature).
Also what about 3.2?  Are you saying that we should fix the bug in 3.2/3.3 only and leave 2.x alone or that you don't want the bug to be fixed in all the bug-fix releases (i.e. 2.7/3.2)?
My idea is to fix the bug in 2.7/3.2/3.3 using the macros, but only make them public in 3.3 so that new features are exposed only in 3.3.
