That's fair enough.  However, it seems like there is one important difference: unlike any other Sequence, namedtuples cannot be initialized with an iterable.

For that reason, I like Eric's option of checking for the _fields member rather than special-casing list and tuple since it seems like namedtuple is the special case.
