I think the direction to take for this depends on the outcome of Issue 21071. First we have to decide if the “format” attribute is blessed as a byte string (and not deprecated), or whether it is deprecated or changed to a text string.

Serhiy pointed out that it is not entirely “safe” because mixing equivalent byte and text formats can generate ByteWarning.
