I think you are correct that the Availability can be removed, since the actual limits of the support are exactly as complicated as the code that supports them, and should give *some* result on most (all?) platforms.  However, OS/X is certainly covered by the current one, since OS/X is a unix flavor.  At this point in time it might be worth doing a sweep through the docs to remove all occurrences of 'Macintosh', since we don't support OS/9 any more.  There look to be less than a dozen such references in the Python3 docs.

I'm adding Gregory to nosy to see if he thinks it is appropriate to remove the 'availability' entirely, since he implemented the fallback.
