I believe the documentation may be referring to the English set and not a Python set, but I could be wrong.

Yury changed the wording from sequence to set in 3.7, but we didn't document a breaking change as far as I know. The purpose of those set constructions was to handle the many things other than a set that can be passed in that may have non-unique values. Early asyncio documentation included examples of passing wait() a list.

I wouldn't be surprised if there are other libraries or apps out there for which removing iterator support was an accidentally-breaking change and it may be strange if this is only is broken in 3.9.x, but working both before and after.
