I think it is okay to leave out the options for the unpacking case. But I think it is worth clarifying that the single-target case also applies without parentheses, but that it doesn’t apply if there is a trailing comma. So:

If the target list is a single target with no trailing comma, optionally in parentheses, the object is assigned to that target.

Else the object must be an iterable . . .
