Thank you for your message. You wrote:
I disagree. That original text looks like it has been very carefully written to be (almost) true. What you are proposing to replace it with is less true and confusing to boot.
The decision is neither your's nor mine. It is for the Python docs maintainers. I will respect their decision, even if I don't agree with it.
I intend, in my page (on why None is special) to continue to quote accurately, and without criticism, the current Python docs.
One intention of my post is to move the particular docs discussion from python-ideas and to bugs.python.org. I think that is a better place for it. They're the people who can decide and do (or not do) something about it.
