Just my two cents as a new contributor but long time user:

- isinstance(list[int], type) returning False seems incredibly un-intuitive to me. I always see generics (e.g. list without type parameter) as higher kinded types, where passing a type argument via [] turns the hkt into a concrete type.

- Backporting to 3.9 and 3.10 should be no issue

- I am not deep enough in pythons type system to judge whether my PR is consistent/good. I really just tried out what works and "feels consistent".
