There are only two references to bytes in the pep:

> Like the other functions in the os module, scandir() accepts either a 
> bytes or str object for the path parameter, and returns the 
> and DirEntry.path attributes with the same type as
> path . However, it is strongly recommended to use the str type, as
> this ensures cross-platform support for Unicode filenames. (On
> Windows, bytes filenames have been deprecated since Python 3.3). 

I'm not concerned about supporting bytes here (with PEP 529, obviously), though the strong recommendation to use str should certainly stand.
