Need documentation for ImportError parameters and exception instance attributes.

What is there to document?  ImportError has no special attributes or parameters.

ImportError has args and message attributes containing failed module name.

No it doesn't.  It has an arbitrary message string.  That's the same as all other exceptions that don't have special attributes.

You are right, however, that the "args" argument is not really well documented.  Fixed that in r87820.
