PEP 487 refers to this as the "owner" of a descriptor
That's just copied from the Python docs:
Anyway, I never liked the name "owner" there, "cls" would have been much clearer.
For PEP 575, I thought of "owner" too, but I don't like it because it sounds too possessive. It sounds like the "owner" somehow has complete control over the function and I don't want that association.
