We should definitely have a way to expose the original dictionary from __prepare__().  Along with Nick's point, another reason is to allow class decorators to have access to that original, which is important to any use case that involves post-creation introspection of the definition order within the class namespace.

Nick, where did you see cls.__locals__?  I'm not finding any mention of __locals__ outside compiler.c and symtable.c.  I agree that such an attribute on classes would be helpful, even if by another name, and that it should be documented.
