The Python 2.7 docs for datetime state, "The standard library has no tzinfo instances except for UTC," but if I read issue5094 correctly, Python 2.7 does not even have a UTC tzinfo instance, and never will. Is there any reason I shouldn't correct the docs to remove 'except for UTC'?

Nope, no reason. I bet it was a bad merge somewhere in the docs from Python 3 to 2.7 at some point.
