Dennis Sweeney <> added the comment:

I think the word "attribute" is preferred over "value" because "value" can mean 
just about anything, whereas, according to , an attribute is 

"""A value associated with an object which is referenced by name using dotted 
expressions. For example, if an object `o` has an attribute `a` it would be 
referenced as `o.a`."""

The phrase "class attribute" is used throughout the documentation to mean an 
attribute of a class. To reference the class attribute called `foo` of the 
class called `MyClass`, we write ``.

Unless I misunderstand you, I don't think there is an issue.
