I give. :)  You've made good points about builtins and C implementations.  Also, thinking about issue #21235 has changed my perspective a bit.

As to _SpecMethods, I mean just drop the class and turn the methods into functions:

* name: <name> -> _spec_<name> (or whatever)
* signature: self -> spec
* body: self.spec -> spec
* body: self.<method> -> method (there is interplay between methods)

And then importlib.util.new_module:

def new_module(spec):
    return _bootstrap._spec_create(spec)
