Is it ok to use --> obj = object()?

Sometimes I find it useful to create an instance of some dummy class so
that I can bind abitrary attributes to it. I sometimes prefer this to
mapping object.

class A: pass .... a = A()
a.x = 1
class B(object): pass .... b = B()
b.x = 1

Rather that creating a dummy class, why not just instantiate from the
object class? However:
obj = object()
obj.x = 1

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
AttributeError: 'object' object has no attribute 'x'
I know I must have misunderstood something. Can you tell me what was wrong?

This is deja vu!
You really should do a search before asking this.
It was discussed just a few days ago.
The answer is you can't do that.
object() isn't bent like that.
The internals just aren't there.
It cannot be used as a 'Bunch'.
Just use classes.
