Agreed, making it easy to follow the inheritance chains at docstring lookup time means it would be redundant to duplicate them at class definition time.

Code that interrogates __doc__ directly rather than using inspect.getdoc won't benefit from the new behaviour, but that's a quality of implementation question in the code handling the introspection.
