The documentation is, in principle, wrong.  The actual authority for the "correct" implementation is PEP3101, which says the following:

    The str.format() function will have
    a minimalist parser which only attempts to figure out when it is
    "done" with an identifier (by finding a '.' or a ']', or '}',
    etc.).

Changing that specification would require a discussion on python-dev.
