The correction of `buffering=None` --> `buffering=-1` for the defaults definitely needs to happen.

A reference to `open()` is already present in the 3.x documentation: "buffering, encoding and newline are interpreted as for open()."

Given that the `open()` reference already suffices for `encoding` and `newline`, it ought to suffice for `buffering` as well. No extra text beyond that should be necessary (I originally thought that might be good to add, but looking at this now it's clear if you add more to describe `buffering` you'll need to add it for the other two options, and it's all duplicative. Fixing the defaults should suffice.)
