Unless I'm missing something, this means that sys.stderr is functionally the default, which means it is the default. We users don't care about implementation details; this documentation is for users, not implementers.

This is how other parts of the same docs work. e.g.:
class logging.handlers.RotatingFileHandler(filename, mode='a', maxBytes=0, backupCount=0, encoding=None, delay=0)
...If mode is not specified, 'a' is used...

class logging.handlers.SysLogHandler(address=('localhost', SYSLOG_UDP_PORT), facility=LOG_USER, socktype=socket.SOCK_DGRAM)
...If address is not specified, ('localhost', 514) is used...
If facility is not specified, LOG_USER is used... 

There's a standard for documenting defaults for keyword arguments, I would ask that it please be used consistently to help us users.
