[Distutils] Clarifying the meaning of the sysconfig "data" directory

As part of the docs clarification, I was planning to point out that such
layouts are almost always platform (and even distro) specific. That's still
a valid use case for sdist and wheel, though, so it makes sense to me to
document it properly.

My other related question is whether it's possible to force bdist_wheel to
include the platform tag as part of the build process, since such wheels
*should* be flagged as platform specific.
