As far as I know, currently, the only valid 'keyword' argument for a class statement is 'metaclass' and that is so advanced that it is not mentioned in *8.7. Class definitions* but only in the linked section *3.3.3. Customizing class creation*. The types.newclass doc also only mentions 'metaclass' as a possible keyword. (Maybe it should currently say that that is the only possibility, but perhaps the window was being left open for possible additions in the future.) So I agree that passing anything else is a bug and should raise. If so, this issue should be closed.
