I don't understand the dismissal of OrderedDict.__init__ as an invalid use case. It would be a substantial usability improvement to special-case OrderedDict at compile-time purely to get the ability to instantiate odict literals (not that I'm suggesting that).
Maybe we should be talking about literals. OrderedDict(a=3, b=3, c=7) is not and never will be a literal.
