If you remove py27-setuptools, you won’t be able to rebuild it anymore from source, it now requires python3. You might be able to reinstall it from the old binary package, but this defeats the purpose. 

Well, yes.

I assume you are not interested in setuptools for Python 2.7 in itself, but rather it is a (build) dependency of some other package that you want to use. So if you remove it and then rolling-replace the stuff that depends on it, you will end up with a working setup. At worst, one of the other packages will install the old setuptools version as part of its build process.
