One metaclass (i.e. type) has a class attribute that refers to itself.
Other metaclasses have a class attribute that refers to the metaclass's
metaclass. I can't think of any situation where a metaclass would be its
own metaclass except for 'type' itself, but then I think I've got a
headache trying to think about this so maybe I'm wrong.
In fact, thinking about it a bit more, I think that if you did have another
metaclass which is its own metaclass then the class cannot subclass
