It also adds default values to the generated constructor, which may or
may not be desirable. But if used exactly like collections.namedtuple,
it ignores the default values.


Since named tuple is considered as an object that is a tuple with attribute access.
The mutable alternative could be considered as an array with attribute access.
Array in this context is tuple-like object that support assign operation.
Since python have not such object there are different approaches tomutable  named tuple alternatives.

One should note that particular property of named tuple is memory saving.
So one can expect similar property of mutable named tuple too.
