ANDROID_API_LEVEL can only be used in the Python test suite and platform.android_ver() must be used in the standard library. The reason why ANDROID_API_LEVEL can be used in the tests instead of using the runtime API level is that the Python test suite purpose is not to test the compatibilities betweeen all the possible subjacent bionic libc(s) and the tests need only be run on the platform for which they have been built.

platform.android_ver() is a welcome enhancement, and since we are at 3.6 beta now it's too late for 3.6 and it will be implemented in 3.7. Sorry about this delay.
