How big a problem would it be to actually move the class to collections ?
For example at the top of the documentation there is a table with all the
available container classes, having SimpleNamespace would be far more
discoverable than a paragraph in namedtuple.

The class could still be importable from types.SimpleNamespace for backward

Sorry for my noob questions...
