Alternatively, the need for an overriding implementation to call super could be marked by a different decorator.
Looking back on the old "Super considered [Harmful | Super]" discussions, it was clear that the fact that a class hierarchy uses super() is part if its API, and:
and every occurrence of the method needs to use super()
So +1 on having an explicit way to specify that super should be used in subclasses, rather than having to look in documentation or the source code to figure that out.
