Ethan, I pasted the minimized version to point out the problem; I fully agree it should do the getattr lookup because otherwise it's very difficult to understand what's going on. Let's keep exceptions for actual exceptional situations and explicitly code the normal path.

Also, _MemberOrProperty is probably a more descriptive name.
