> What do you set __file__ to? [...]

Exactly. I think it should not be set, just like it's not set for builtin modules.

> I have some observations about the implications of this. I typed up a long comment but then realized someone would probably complain about me distracting from the technical parts of this issue. Which forum is most appropriate for this less technical commentary? (I want to lay out the case for building out an official importer far more advanced than frozen importer.)

That seems to be something for python-dev. (There used to be an "import-sig" but the last mention I have from it is about that list shutting down for lack of traffic.) Or if you're still looking for more brainstorming you could try python-ideas first.
