> do you know of any other cases where this gives a misleading error message?

Actually my concern was about cases where the new error might be wrong/misleading, but I haven't checked yet.  If there are no such cases I think we should fix it; the error message will be better in the few cases we have in the stdlib and for all the external libs that are using the function.

Another thing that I haven't checked is if there are similar functions (e.g. to parse kwargs) that needs the same treatment (#16520 might be one such example).
