I agree with Raymond's recommendation - actually supporting this would mean adding code that would need to be maintained indefinitely without providing a compensating practical benefit, so I'm flagging this as "not a bug". Thanks Christian for nudging us to make a decision one way or the other.

If another implementation requests clarification, we might want to document that "directly callable-or-not" for these descriptors is formally an interpreter implementation detail, but in the absence of such a request, I think this issue serves as an adequate reference.
