Terry J. Reedy added the comment:

The respective howto and examples authors should give their OK for deleting '(object)' in case they are trying to keep one text compatible across 2 and 3. I added the other two to the nosy list.

Doc/howto/descriptor.rst -- Raymond H.
Doc/howto/sorting.rst -- Raymond H.
Doc/howto/logging-cookbook.rst -- Vinay S.
Doc/library/unittest.mock-examples.rst -- Michael F.

Since raise AttributeError(message) works in 2.x, I think that should definitely be changed in descriptor.rst.

I also think the regular docs can be changed without further ado.
