Raymond, I think your patch does not really address the issue reported here. The dict documentation still guarantees that mutating a dict during iteration will raise a RuntimeError or may skip elements. The OrderedDict documentation still does not point out that OrderedDicts behave differently, yet they still raise a different exception than a regular dict in the same situation.

I believe it should be possible to pass an OrderedDict to any function expecting a regular dict. This is still not possible. But even if you think this is not desirable (or not worth the cost), could we at least *document* that OrderedDicts behave differently?
