Isn't this just a consequence of Python's usual name-lookup rules?  In this code:

    def test():
        class Season(Enum):
            SPRING = Season()

the class definition in 'test' amounts to a local assignment to the name 'Season'.  So the occurrence of 'Season' in the class definition is bound to that function local (at bytecode level, it's looked up using LOAD_DEREF instead of LOAD_NAME).

I find it difficult to see how one could 'fix' this without significant changes to the way that Python does name resolution.
