> If a Fortran array was allowed in a bytes-like context without memory copying, the order of the array elements would differ from the order returned by the meoryview.tobytes() method, which essentially is defined to copy them out in C-array or flattend-tolist() order.

I'm still not seeing how this would cause such an object to throw an error if used in a bytes-like context.  I presume by the above that you mean that the results of passing the object directly to a bytes like context differs from the results of calling .tobytes() on it and passing *that* to the bytes like context.  That's not what your suggested documentation change says, though.
