How to reproduce:
In Python:
> import _frozen_importlib
> print(_frozen_importlib.__spec__.origin)

Observed result:
The __spec__.origin attribute of the _frozen_importlib module is None.

Expected result:
The __spec__.origin attribute of the _frozen_importlib module should be 'frozen', like it is already the case for the _frozen_importlib_external module and documented for all frozen modules in PEP 451:

I can replicate.

Do note, though, that PEPs are not documentation once they are implemented; at that point the official docs are what should be followed.

Frozen module's origin isn't really documented AFAICT.  Here's the link to the library reference:

The language reference doesn't really have anything to say here.  I think it wouldn't be difficult to add 'frozen' to the origin, but it should also be documented in the library reference (and of course, tested).

I'll be happy to take a look at this.
