Screw it, forget the "like" and make that a "will happen". A What's New entry telling people to update their code to use a getattr() with a None default value for transitioning should be enough (and a single line change for the few people who would care about this).

This will also require an updating of the importlib docs, language reference, and PEP 302 to say the language reference and importlib docs now supersede the PEP. For both attributes it should be stated that a value of None means "I don't know what the values should be", but that loaders should continue to be required to set them.
