For now, I'm going to close this as "out of date", with the guidance being 
"Define a data class instead" (since that gets rid of the historical 
boilerplate a different way: auto-generating suitable methods based on the 
field declarations).

If somebody comes up with a use case for this protocol idea that isn't 
adequately covered by data classes, then they can bring it up on python-ideas, 
and we can look at revisiting the question.
