Mark Dickinson <dickinsm at gmail.com> added the comment:

It's certainly intentional behaviour:  all the defaultdict does is provide a __missing__ method.  And as explained in


"No other operations or methods invoke __missing__()."

So it looks to me as though this issue should be either a doc issue, or a feature request for 3.3.  Reclassifying as a doc issue.
