The underlying problem is that those functions are not very well-specified (actually, classify_class_attrs() is not specified at all: it's undocumented).  The main consumer of inspect in the stdlib is pydoc, and pydoc being broken by third-party libraries with non-trivial descriptors was a major nuisance.
