I take back my previous suggestion, I agree that documenting it in setattr() (and **kwargs) is the way to go. It's obvious that you can assign anything to the __dict__, since it represents a dict, but setattr() is more ambiguous.
'Anything' was the key word for me here. For example you can assign ints to __dict__ and it won't complain but try to do the same with setattr()/getattr() and it results in an error.
