Terry J. Reedy added the comment:

My rationale for supporting removal is this: People beginning with Py3, which is most beginners in the next decade, seeing (object), might think it necessary in certain cases or that it does something. The descriptor how-to is a) advanced and b) can have a note if needed. People who know Py2 might get a wrong idea either way, but should read some 2 to 3 guide and then will know. If a choice be needed, I would rather cater to future Python learners.

Anyway, we only need Michael's word to know for sure which to patch, or can go ahead without touching mock-examples.
