I think your proposed workaround is good enough and no extra effort to type than the suggested change to assertIsInstance.

I think the behaviour of isinstance is clear enough that people who misunderstand what assertIsInstance is doing have a problem with basic Python - and will continue to make the mistake whatever we do to assertIsInstance.
