I was not aware the __name__ attribute is an implementation detail. It is described in the docs:

I have been using it since python 2.7, for example for logging.

The function “split_module_names” is just a function to see what items in a module have and do not have a __name__ attribute; thought it might help proceedings.

If I were to suggest an improvement, it would be that all classes and types (or minimally the abc’s) would have a __name__ attribute, being the name under which it can be imported. 
Also that the abc’s in typing and collections are as similar as possible.
