From a documentation perspective, I'd suggest breaking the ABC module documentation at into three subsections:

29.7.1 Defining Abstract Base Classes

This would include the existing docs for ABC, ABCMeta, abstractmethod and get_cache_token.

29.7.2 Syntactic ABCs

New section containing the documentation for the ABCs relocated from

29.7.3 Deprecated decorator API

The docs for abstractclassmethod, abstractstaticmethod and abstractproperty can be moved out of the main ABC definition docs, since the only reason to use them now is for single source Python 2/3 compatibility, or compatibility with Python 3.2.
