IMO there's no actual bug in Python. Perhaps documentation can be clarified
in a short simple way. I would reiterate the point that restating facts of
the language all over the documentation is not a great idea, but maybe here
the benefits outweigh the drawbacks.

Anyway I think the bug is clear now (it's a docs issue if anything) so I'd
leave it open until someone offers a patch or a strong argument why it
shouldn't be clarified.
