Checking older versions of the docs, it looks like we simply haven't reworded those docs since Python 2.0 (when the "list" of the 1.5 docs became "sequence" for 2.0).

So I think the most appropriate resolution here would be to replace the current use of "sequence" with "iterable" in both the code and the documentation.
