I agree, that raising UnicodeEncodeError instead of ValueError is acceptable, since the former is a subclass of the latter. But since the default implementation raises more specialized subclass, it is probably that the user code will catch more narrow exception type. Seems, it is not hard to make the same exception be raised in all cases. For example, in date_fromisoformat():

    if (!dt_ptr || len != 10
        || parse_isoformat_date(dt_ptr, &year, &month, &day) < 0)
        PyErr_Format(PyExc_ValueError, "Invalid isoformat string: %R", dstr);
        return NULL;
