The would likely take an API change.  For now, using only what is already exposed in Python, we can only partition data descriptors in two groups:

* Known to be readonly because __set__ is missing or fset is None
* Possibly writeable, can't really tell until __set__ is called

Example in the latter category,  

    >>> t = time.localtime()
    >>> hasattr(type(t).tm_sec, '__set__')
    >>> t.tm_sec = 31
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "<pyshell#23>", line 1, in <module>
         t.tm_sec = 31
    AttributeError: readonly attribute
