Please document these two things:

* Order of callbacks firing is not specified. (Is it True?)
* All callbacks are called *BEFORE* await triggered:
  f = asyncio.Future()
     await f
  except Exception:
     ...  # all callbacks are called BEFORE entering that place (for example)
* How exceptions in callbacks are handled

The docs for asyncio were rewritten in September 2018.

@socketpair, please take a look at the new documentation and update this ticket if any of your requests are now explained.  If not, would you be able to provide more specific suggestions of what you would like to see included?
