3rd in progress draft - converted most of the "inherently assumes ASCII" docs now. I think this set of changes really makes it clear how non-trivial it actually is to infer the binary domain behaviour from the str docs, which have all sorts of Unicode complications. You can't easily infer the behaviour from the Python 2 docs either, since these operations were locale dependent for Python 2 str objects.
