Irit Katriel firstname.lastname@example.org added the comment:
There is a general note at the top of the module:
"Note: All functions in this module raise OSError (or subclasses thereof) in the case of invalid or inaccessible file names and paths, or other arguments that have the correct type, but are not accepted by the operating system."
So there seems to have been a decision not state this separately for each function in the module.
