Generally speaking, I'm +1 on this idea, I think it would make code more readable, especially for tools like IDEs. 

I just wanted to ask: can someone point me to the reason Python doesn't support referencing a class inside it's own definition? It seems like that would solve some of the cases discussed here, and with Type hinting that seems like something that maybe should be considered?
