R. David Murray <rdmurray at bitdance.com> added the comment:
collections.Set (in python 3.3, collections.abc.Set) is the *definition* of the minimal API. To construct a class that conforms to the minimal definition is certainly easier than constructing one that supports all of the methods that the set builtin does.
I suppose it would be possible for the collections module to provide a 'SetMixin' or some such that provided implementations of the other methods in terms of the required methods, but that would definitely be a feature request, and probably a topic that should be discussed first on the python-ideas mailing list.
