The existing install schemes contain values for all different kinds of OSes, somehow named according to them.

If we introduce a single "virtual"/"venv" scheme, it would need to have different contents on different OSes (e.g. Windows vs POSIX). I don't think that would cause any actual trouble, but it would be somewhat different than all the other schemes.

If we introduce multiple ones (e.g. "posix_venv" and "nt_venv") we would need an additional layer to get the one appropriate for the current platform.

Hence, I think having a single one is more pragmatic.
