I don't like the proposed note.

1. It is not the job of the time module documentation to warn about "many functions in the stdlib."  What are these functions, BTW?

2. What is "calendar time in POSIX encoding"? This sounds like what time.asctime() returns.

I think an improvement would be to spell Epoch with a capital E and define it as "The time zero hours, zero minutes, zero seconds, on January 1, 1970 Coordinated Universal Time (UTC)."  See <http://pubs.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/9699919799>.
