It's not obvious to me if the authors originally intended to have the 'name' attribute as a formal interface, so I've decided the change should probably be added to Python 3.4. Here's a diff I've put together: http://paste.jaraco.com/tMdQ2

It updates the documentation and adds a test to guarantee the interface. I'm unsure about the RST syntax, so I would appreciate a review of the syntax there. Also, I haven't run the test yet, but I'll do that at a later date.
