If they did, we would probably be seeing folks make use of our renpy-
build-system, though I can't speak for people using Renpy on Guix to
publish non-free games.

This does not just affect publishing though.  It also means that a
bunch of games you codes for 7.4 will not work (as expected) with Renpy
8, which might be – pardon the pun – game-breaking.

Only cython is currently in Guix Past, the rest needs to be added. 
Regarding renpy 8, it turns out that no tags exist in Github currently,
so we would have to guess some random commits.  That plus my already
mentioned concerns should imho be enough to consider using the actually
stable version as renpy and offer the other one as renpy-next if people
feel like breaking their stuff.  OTOH if our stance is that we really
don't want any python 2 stuff in Guix and rather have people use time
machine, I think we should loudly break the package (by removing it)
rather than silently.
