We can just use this one - it was more in the nature of a question "is there anything we want to change about the status quo?" than a request for any specific change.

I'm actually OK with buffer API based interoperability, but if we're going to offer that, we should be consistent:

1. bytes and bytearray should interoperate with anything supporting the buffer interface (which they already mostly do)
2. When they encounter each other, LHS wins (as with set() and frozenset())
3. We should fix the operand coercion bug for C level concatenation slot implementations (already covered by issue #11477) 
4. Update the documentation as needed

Since we're tinkering with builtin behaviour, 1 & 2 should probably be brought up on python-dev once someone checks if there is anything other than .join() that needs updating.
