Here is a simple patch that simply explains negative indexes and negative slices are not supported for the string format documentation.  Perhaps more documentation needs to be created else where to help explain why all collections do not need to support negative indexes and negative slices? If so please let me know and I will create it.  But I think this patch at least clarifies for the use case of String format.
