Now after some researching I see I wasn't wrong at all. I should've been sayed:

"The fact that write() -> open() relies on sys.getfilesystemencoding() (respectively locale.getpreferredencoding()) at default as encoding is either a defect or a bad design (I leave the decision to you)."

Or am I overlooking something?
