Ah, excellent point about "encoding='utf-8'" already being a less cryptic replacement for universal_newlines=True, so consider my questions withdrawn :)

As far as universal_newlines goes, that needs to remain documented for the sake of folks reading code that uses it, and folks that need compatibility with older versions, but +1 for recommending specifying an encoding over using that flag for new 3.6+ code.
