Since the _pyio implementation doesn't support general memoryview-like objects, I consider using the new buffer protocol in the C implementation an implementation detail. Other implementations can lack this support. I think it would be better to left the wording more general ("preallocated writable array of bytes"), but mention other concrete example (array('b'), are there other examples in the stdlib?).
