I think some of the information in the issue 15330 comments would be very helpful to add as well (what thread-safe means in Python, distinction between thread-safe and atomic, and which deque methods are thread-safe and/or atomic).

If some of that information is too general for the collections library, perhaps some of it can go in a section of the Python documentation about multithreading (the glossary?), and then be linked to there.
