For Python functions, all arguments can be keyword arguments. For many builtins, none can be (and maybe there should be a note to that effect at the top of the built-in functions chapter). 'Param = default' merely means that the parameter has a default argument and it is therefore optional to provide one. It says nothing about whether the argument can be identified by the parameter name or only by position.
