The trouble with that is that you can't always use a dict subclass (or a non-subclass MutableMapping implementation, etc, etc, etc). There are MANY situations in which Python will give you an actual real dict, and it defeats the purpose if you then have to construct an AddableDict out of it just so you can add something to it. Not every proposed change makes sense on PyPI, and it definitely won't get a fair representation in "practical experience".
Chris seems to accept that sometimes you can use a dict subclass, and that my proposal will give some representation of "practical experience".
I said "definitely won't", not "will give some". So, no.
