This should be worked into a PEP, instead of living on as a bunch of python-ideas posts and blogs.
I find the attrs documentation (and Glyph's blog post about it) almost unreadable because of the exalted language -- half the doc seems to be selling the library more than explaining it. If this style were to become common I would find it a disturbing trend.
But having something alongside NamedTuple that helps you declare classes with mutable attributes using the new PEP 526 syntax (and maybe a few variants) would definitely be useful. Will someone please write a PEP? Very few of the specifics of attrs need be retained (its punny naming choices are too much for the stdlib).

Whatever you all propose,
coming from a java and c++ background, OOP in python is quite cumbersome.
if you tell that i am not a python guy, then consider that current oop style does not reflect python's style of ease and simplicity
is __init__ really a good syntax choice?
That's a different question, and one with a well-structured third party solution: https://attrs.readthedocs.io/en/stable/
See https://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-ideas/2017-April/045514.html for some ideas on how something like attrs might be adapted to provide better standard library tooling for more concise and readable class definitions.
